Congrats to the team! The paper on ‘Large-scale additive manufacturing with bioinspired cellulosic materials’ made it to the top 100 most highly read materials science papers for Natures’ Scientific Reports journal in 2018, signifying its great value to the research community.

The research paper features the fungal-like adhesive material (FLAM) which was inspired by oomycetes, a microorganism better known as water mould. FLAM is not only strong, lightweight and cost-effective, it is more importantly fully biodegradable, paving the way for a sustainable approach to 3D printing using natural materials.
