We take nature as a source of endless inspiration for the development of novel classes of materials and processes, combining chemistry, materials science, and engineering tools.
Tissue engineering addresses the scarcity of tissues/organs available for repair and transplantation, by adopting multidisciplinary strategies permitting the ex-vivo creation of implantable hybrid constructs through the integration of biomaterials, therapeutic cells and physicochemical signals.
Our group focuses on the use of an interplay and cutting-edge nano- and micro-technologies for addressing a multitude of biomedical applications, including those in diagnostics and therapy.

Due to the covid-19 pandemics our weekly "COMPASS Meeting" occurred online today! It was nice to see for the first time the new faces of the group. Those are strange times indeed, but we should make the most of it! 👩‍🔬
