Cell electrospinning is an unrivalled technology for building 3D structures that mimic native tissue.
Functional synthetic tissues are used for repair, replacement and rejuvenation of damaged or ageing tissues and organs. Historically, scaffolds have been used as substrates on which cells are seeded… Read more »
Cell reprogramming converts specialised cells such as nerve cells or skin cells towards an embryonic stem cell state. This reversal in the evolutionary development of cells also requires a reversal in the biology of telomeres, the structures that protect the… Read more →
Ordinarily, when patients require a total or partial replacement of their esophagus, tissue from their own stomach or intestine is used. This doesn’t always result in a fully-functioning organ, plus it also involves the surgical removal of the needed material.… Read more →
Our cells don’t live in a vacuum. They are surrounded by a complex, nurturing matrix that is essential for many biological functions, including growth and healing.
In all multicellular organisms, including people, cells make their own extracellular matrix. But in… Read more →
Professor Sami Franssila is participating in a research project that could, if successful, revolutionise the treatment of coronary thrombosis and brain damage.
You cannot walk into the clean rooms of Micronova with your snowy boots. ’We fabricate nano-scale objects so… Read more →
Professor Stevens will talk on New materials based approaches for regenerative medicine and biosensing. Dr James Mason from the Pharmaceutical Biophysics Group will chair. Wine reception to follow.
