Dr. Aurelien Forget

Passionate by macromolecules and the interaction of polymers with biological systems, my research tries to answer fundamental questions to understand the interaction between hydrogels and living organisms (bacteria, human cells).

To achieve this goal, I am developing biomedical tools, methods, and materials in different fields of science and engineering. I have a proven 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.
