Video: Bacteria that grow into bricks being researched at CU Boulder

July 24, 2019

Professor Srubar’s research got featured on 9 News. Srubar's goal is to create a living hybrid building material that exhibits both structural and biological function. The possibilities for his work are endless and especially interesting in extreme environments and military applications. Bricks could self-heal after natural disasters or enemy fire, or act as alarms by changing color when there are toxins in the air.
