WIN and ChE Joint Seminar - Advanced nanostructured biomaterials: from synthesis, structure-property relationship to processing and applications in regenerative medicine
2. 3. 2023, 10:00 - 12:00
Online via ZOOM (registration required)
Assoc. Prof. Lucy Vojtová
WATERLOO INSTITUTE FOR NANOTECHNOLOGY
Associate professor L. Vojtová is the head of the Advanced Biomaterials group at CEITEC located in central Europe. She will present an overview of their interest and research focused primarily on the design and synthesis of “smart” high-performance stimuli-responsive functional polymers and composites including nano- and submicron fillers for biomedical applications. She will also highlight hydrogel self-assembly, surface nanopatterning, sol-gel transitions, release- and lifetime-controlled biomaterials serving as drug carriers or scaffolds for both hard and soft tissue regeneration. Materials processed via rapid prototyping, freeze-drying, or spinning will be discussed as well in terms of biological in vitro, ex ovo, ex vivo, or in vivo evaluation. I hope to provide a flavor of the research our group is performing and to spark your interest in potential future collaborations.
