    • A bioinspired omniphobic surface coating on medical devices prevents thrombosis and biofouling 

      Leslie, Daniel; Waterhouse, Anna; Berthet, Julia B; Valentin, Thomas M; Watters, Alexander; Jain, Abhishek; Kim, Philseok; Hatton, Benjamin D; Nedder, Arthur; Donovan, Kathryn; Super, Elana H; Howell, Caitlin; Johnson, Christopher P; Vu, Thy L; Bolgen, Dana; Rifai, Sami; Hansen, Anne Rosenfeld; Aizenberg, Michael; Super, Michael; Aizenberg, Joanna; Ingber, Donald Elliot (Nature Publishing Group, 2014)
      Thrombosis and biofouling of extracorporeal circuits and indwelling medical devices cause significant morbidity and mortality worldwide. We describe a bioinspired coating that repels blood from virtually any material by ...
    • Infused polymers for cell sheet release 

      Juthani, Nidhi; Howell, Caitlin; Ledoux, Haylea; Sotiri, Irini; Kelso, Susan; Kovalenko, Yevgen; Tajik, Amanda; Vu, Thy L.; Lin, Jennifer J.; Sutton, Amy; Aizenberg, Joanna (Nature Publishing Group, 2016)
      Tissue engineering using whole, intact cell sheets has shown promise in many cell-based therapies. However, current systems for the growth and release of these sheets can be expensive to purchase or difficult to fabricate, ...
    • Self-Replenishing Vascularized Fouling-Release Surfaces 

      Howell, Caitlin; Vu, Thy L.; Lin, Jennifer; Kolle, Stefan; Juthani, Nidhi; Watson, Emily; Weaver, James C.; Alvarenga, Jack; Aizenberg, Joanna (American Chemical Society (ACS), 2014)
      Inspired by the long-term effectiveness of living antifouling materials, we have developed a method for the self-replenishment of synthetic biofouling-release surfaces. These surfaces are created by either molding or ...
    • Stability of Surface-Immobilized Lubricant Interfaces under Flow 

      Howell, Caitlin; Vu, Thy L.; Johnson, Christopher; Hou, Xu; Ahanotu, Onyemaechi; Alvarenga, Jack; Leslie, Daniel; Uzun, Oktay; Waterhouse, Anna; Kim, Philseok; Super, Michael; Aizenberg, Michael; Ingber, Donald Elliot; Aizenberg, Joanna (American Chemical Society (ACS), 2015)
      The stability and longevity of surface-stabilized lubricant layers is a critical question in their application as low- and nonfouling slippery surface treatments in both industry and medicine. Here, we investigate lubricant ...
