Biohybrid materials and devices - which integrate both biological and engineered components - offer exciting opportunities to create new functionalities and support sustainability. Scientists and engineers are exploring biohybrid materials and devices for applications in a broad range of areas including robotics, health, manufacturing, architecture, and agriculture. To highlight emerging science and technology in this area and examine innovation drivers and barriers, the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine hosted a workshop, Biohybrid Materials and Technologies for Today and Tomorrow, January 12-13, 2023. Presenters and attendees from government, academia, and industry gathered in person and online to share examples of biohybrid technologies, identify potential research needs and opportunities, and discuss issues involved in translating this work into commercial markets and applications. This Proceedings of a Workshop-in Brief provides a high-level overview of the event.
