NWO Vidi Award : Pieces of plastic with biological properties?

Prize: NWOVidiScientific


The researchers will use unique chemical interactions to controllably introduce bioactive signals in polymeric materials to respond to cells in a two-way process. It is proposed that load-bearing biomedical implants, composed of these controlled bioactive materials display superior life-like functions, and are therefore able to faster induce proper tissue formation.
