Fields of expertise

Can we use structural material properties on the nanoscale to engineer selective interactions at the bio-interface?

The goal of the Programmable Biomaterials Lab is to understand the molecular design rules behind selective multivalent interactions at the bio-interface. We use DNA as engineering tool to explore the importance of structural mechanics and precise control of valency and patterns on directional interactions and self-assembly.

Courses

Biology for engineers

This course consists of an introduction to biology and more particularly to biology as a multidisciplinary field, emphasizing natural examples of materials engineering. It should therefore allow engineering students to find inspiration from biology in future materials research problems.

Seminar series on advances in materials (autumn)

A series of seminars on selected current and emerging topics in Materials will be presented by experts.

Biomaterials (pour MX)

The course introduces the main classes of biomaterials used in the biomedical field. The interactions with biological environment are discussed and challenges highlighted. State of the art examples per type of material are discussed. Students will generate a biomaterial and study cell compatibility.
