On the October 1st, Eline van Haaften successfully defended her PhD thesis which was focussed on Materials-Driven Regeneration reseach and was supervised by Carlijn Bouten and Nicholas Kurniawan. The title of her project was: ‘On the impact of the mechanical environment in vascular tissue engineering: an in vitro study.’ She received her PhD degree cum […]
Nicholas Kurniawan (TU/e) was awarded with an ERC Starting Grant of up to 1.5 M Euro. Nicholas and his team will work on dissecting the dynamics of the physical interactions between cells and the extracellular matrix. They will develop ways to mechanically manipulate cell behavior using dynamic substrates and materials. The outlook is to temporally control cell response […]
Prof. Jos Malda and coworkers publish on a new way of thinking about the regeneration of articular cartilage. Cartilage has a limited healing capacity; however, studies into the basic biological characteristics, formation and structural maintenance of the cartilage collagen network are providing explanations for the failure of current therapeutic approaches, urging us to rethink our […]
