Biomodification of polymeric scaffolds for regenerative medicine
Name of the supervisor
Ing. Jaroslav Katrlík, PhD.
Faculty of Chemical and Food Technology, Slovak University of Technology
This PhD project focuses on the modification of polymeric materials with biomolecules in order to prepare scaffolds for applications in regenerative medicine. Modification procedures (physical and chemical such as click chemistry) and various biomodifiers (peptides, proteins, glycans) will be developed and tested, modified surfaces will be analyzed (AFM, FTIR, XPS) and tested for their biocompatibility and efficiency of their colonization by cells.
