2021 Advanced Materials  
Microgravity has proved to be an ideal condition to grow crystals. In article number 2101777, Raphael Pfattner, Tiago Sotto Mayor, Daniel Ruiz-Molina, Josep Puigmartí-Luis, and co-workers demonstrate how to generate simulated microgravity on Earth to grow 2D porous crystalline molecular frameworks such as 2D metalorganic frameworks and 2D covalent organic frameworks. Cancer Therapy Robust and modular systems for T cell expansion have immense utilities for clinical development and

Hu and co-workers demonstrate a photoactivated intracellular radical polymerization technique that transforms live dendritic cells into a functional T-cell-stimulating biomaterial, which effectively enhances adoptive cell therapy against cancer in mice. Advanced Functional Materials reports breakthrough research in all aspects of materials science, including nano technology, chemistry, physics, and biology.
