Biomaterials design for biomedical engineering focuses on a multidisciplinary approach combining material science, physics and biology to investigate the design, fabrication and use of architectured materials for biology and biomedical engineering. In particular we aim to adress the following subjects:
- Architectured microenvironments for biophysics and tissue/disease models.
- Biomaterials for tissue regeneration (bone, muscle, soft tissue,…) and medical devices (prostheses, orthoses,…).
- Development and use of multi-scale characterization techniques for biomaterials and tissues/organs.
- The use of nanomaterials for biosensors or other applications in biology/medicine.
IRP4 - Architectured surfaces for confining cell movement (PhD M. Bonnefoy, Liphy & ENSAG)
IRP4 - SALD deposition of ZnO (15 nm) on SPR prism for protein adsorption assays (Postdoc L. Marichal, LMGP).
