Passionated by macromolecules and the interaction of polymers with biological systems, our research tries to answer fundamental questions to understand the interaction between polymers (plastics, hydrogels) and living organisms (bacteria, human cells) and one day to be able to use materials to direct the regeneration of organs.
To achieve this goal, we are developing biomedical tools, methods, and materials in different fields of science and engineering. We have a proven a track record in establishing 3D bioprinting techniques, materials for 3D cell cultures, fibers for wound dressing and active medical devices to improve the survival of living cells.
