Biomedical Materials

Developing advanced biomaterials and biomanufacturing technologies for the next generation of repair and regenerative therapies in orthopaedics

 

 

Dr Matteo D' Este

Focus Area Leader a.i.:
Biomedical Materials

The Biomedical Materials focus area is committed to the design of advanced biomaterials and the development of manufacturing technologies to achieve improved patient care and outcome in musculoskeletal disorders.

We create biomaterials that react to environmental stimuli, that interact with cells and tissues and that are amenable to cutting-edge 3D printing and biofabrication technologies. We develop bio-processing technologies for cost-efficient tissue engineering approaches to regenerative, patient-tailored precision medicine. We design biomaterial surfaces and antibacterial delivery systems for prevention and treatment of infections.

By enhancing our knowledge of the biomaterials design, additive manufacturing and bioprocessing, we aim to advance patient care.
