  • Third objective

    It is (i) to enhance the efficacy of medical devices by 2D biointegrative coatings that direct and orchestrate the interface to living cells and tissue and enable improved integration within the body, (ii) to advance therapeutic measures by 3D templates for tissue repair, and (iii) to enable new diagnostic tools by responsive diagnostic hydrogels.

BIOGEL is set up to educate young scientists to develop innovative hydrogel chemistries and systems for biomedical applications.

BIOGEL is set up to educate 14 young scientists to develop innovative hydrogel chemistries and systems for biomedical applications. Functional and responsive hydrogels, which resemble specific properties of the extracellular matrix, will be engineered to: (I) enhance the efficacy of medical devices by 2D biointegrative coatings (II) advance therapeutic measures by 3D templates for tissue repair (III) enable new diagnostic tools by responsive diagnostic hydrogels The program is focused on synthetic and biohybrid macromolecules to build clinically translatable hydrogels that direct and orchestrate the interface with biomolecules, living cells, and tissue. In order to enable efficient biohybridisation and minimal invasive application, emphasis is set on in situ gelation of precursors that do not affect the viability of cells and living tissue, can interlink bioactive subunits to stimulate tissue regeneration, and serve as a functional component in biomedical devices.
