Students of Nature: Bionic Technology for Medicine

Bionics is not a new area of research. Leonardo da Vinci already modeled his flying machines after birds. However, bionics remains highly exciting until this day, because you are often able to find solutions where nobody expected them. Or would you have thought that an intestinal parasite was recently the inspiration for an adhesive bandage?
