Polymer Micronetworks with Shape-Memory as Future Platform to Explore Shape-Dependent Biological Effects


Polymer micronetworks allowing stimuli-induced, predefined, and spatially directed shape shifts. The temperature-induced on-demand switching of shape is introduced as a function of polyester carriers. With their adjustable ­switching temperature, micronetworks may serve as a model system to explore static and dynamic shape effects in biological systems.
