Sabine van Rijt’s research aims to apply multifunctional nanoparticles in regenerative medicine. In particular, she aims to design and synthesize functionalized nanoparticles for imaging, site specific drug delivery, and controlled release purposes. The ability to modify specific features of physical, chemical and/or biological properties of, for example, stem cells opens the way to manipulate their actions in biomedical applications. She also aims to apply these nanoparticles for synergistic approaches to create “smart” instructive synthetic biomaterials for tissue and organ regeneration.
