Micro and nanomanufactured smart surfaces to unlock the potential of multipotent stem cells

Project: Research

Project Details

Project Description

This Project aims to determine the interplay of micro/nanostructures on stem cell mechanotransduction and to
control the cellular environment. It is expected that this will expand our knowledge on how to drive stem cell fate.
Expected outcomes are novel scalable technologies for micro/nanostructures and smart surfaces, controlled
stem-cell expansion and differentiation, and the creation of a library of protein expression based on the cellinteractions.
This should provide critical information required for the future development of instructive biomaterials
to drive stem cell expansion and tissue-regeneration. This should benefit the future development of efficient and
cost-effective regenerative medicine solutions.
