Cell-Type Specific Biomaterials
We aim to understand the underlying mechanisms of topography and geometry sensing of cells (e.g. ChemPhysChem, 5, 85-92, 2004; Biophys. J, 2006) and explore the suitability of appropriately structured materials for application in cell-type specific tissue engineering or implant surfaces favoring controlled cell growth (e.g. Acta Biomaterialia, 2009).
