Spider Silk: Not Just Fibers Anymore

Dr. Randy Lewis' research focuses on the "ancient new" material of silks produced by spiders. His work is creating the potential to mass-produce innovative materials that are stronger than steel and stretchier than nylon. His research has garnered press attention from around the world and commercial interest from numerous companies. In his presentation, Dr. Lewis will discuss the importance of spider silk and its many potential uses, such as ligament and tendon repair, medical coatings and adhesives, high-tech clothing, parachutes, and airbags. He will give an overview of his group's work to reproduce those silks using a variety of different systems including bacteria, goats, alfalfa and silkworms. Dr. Lewis will also discuss several new discoveries made since he came to USU in June 2011.
