Biological Characterisation

Core Topics

  • in vitro cell (co)culture models involving (among others): osteoblasts, osteoclast, chondrocytes, monocytes, macrophages, endothelial cells and mesenchymal stem cells from umbilical cord (HUCPV)
  • Cell/material interaction on cell metabolism activity
  • Biomimetic coatings (phospholipid based)
  • Antibacterial surface, materials, and peptides
  • Nanoparticle toxicity
  • 3D structure and composition of bone-implant interface and bone remodelling
  • Optimisation of synchrotron based tomography and SAXS/WAXS methods with special focus on sample environments
