Research Activities

My research is focused on the development of biomimetic zonal cartilage constructs. Therefore, novel bioactive hydrogels will be developed through nano-programmed assembly based on the systematic analysis of the basic properties of the natural tissues. A bioextruder system will be optimized allowing the production of zonal grafts based on different hydrogels encapsulating cells. Mechanical, chemical and biological testes will be performed to validate this approach.
