New methods to investigate the interface between biomaterials and cells to help regenerate body tissues

New methods to investigate the interface between biomaterials and cells to help regenerate body tissues

Lidy Fratila-Apachitei and Murali Ghatkesar received a Cohesion grant to investigate how 3-D printed pillars with features in the sub-micrometre range can affect adhesion and mechanics of living progenitor cells at single cell level. Together with postdoc researcher Livia Angeloni and the other collaborators, they developed and applied a novel method based on fluid force microscopy.

Nastaran Barin has developed a promising tool for studying brain cancer mechanobiology

Nastaran Barin has developed a promising tool for studying brain cancer mechanobiology

Understanding the mechanobiology of glioma cells is of paramount importance for prospective treatment screening of this brain tumour. Nastaran Barin and Angelo Accard developed, in a joint effort with Erasmus MC, biomimetic 3D structures via two-photon polymerization and cultured therein patient derived glioma cells.
