Participation in Working Groups

  • WG1 - Biophysics of cell and tissue structure
  • WG3 - New methodologies to study mechanobiology of cells and tissues

Research Interests

Self-assembly, biomaterials, biophysics of the cell membrane, single-cell analytics, micro/nanotechnologies in life science and medicine.

Technologies offered to other EuroCellNet participants

Micro/nanofabrication of (bio)molecular and solid architectures, biosensing, cell membrane mimetic surfaces, cell patterning and networking, hydrogel technology for tissue scaffolds, scanning probe microscopy.

Technologies sought from other EuroCellNet participants

Cell cultures and tissue models that could be further enhanced by micropatterning and microscaffolding technologies.
