Research Activity:

 

In Vitro Bone Tissue Engineering On Patterned and Unpatterned Polymeric Cell Carriers: The scope of this study is to design thermoresponsive smart polymeric carriers both in patterned and unpatterned forms, and coated with various proteins for bone tissue engineering. We aim to investigate the effect of physical guidance and chemical cues on cellular behaviour such as adhesion, spreading, migration, proliferation and differentiation.
