Project description Functional biomaterials are often used in new medical treatment strategies and particularly, research towards synthetic ECM mimics has gained great interest. However, small changes in material composition could lead to much more pronounced differences in material properties. Therefore, automatization of biomaterial screening may be a remunerative approach. The aim of this work is […]

Project description The extracellular matrix (ECM) is a dynamic, multicomponent network that provides both structural support and biochemical information to epithelial cells during kidney development. To better understand the role of ECM ligands towards their receptors, Matrigel is traditionally used as the state-of-the-art basement membrane for cell culturing. However, Matrigel lacks the ability to uncouple […]
