BioTUNE's research at the 13th IBEC Symposium – Bioengineering for Future and Precision Medicine

Bio-TUNE reserchers Dr. Ada Cavalcanti and PhD student Lluis Oliver present their latest work at the 13th IBEC Symposium – Bioengineering for Future and Precision Medicine. The symposium took place on October 27th, online, bringing together international experts and researchers for an open forum for interdisciplinary discussions and networking.

Dr. Ada Cavalcanti, Group leader of the "Physical Chemistry of Cell Adhesion" research group at University of Heidelberg and Max Planck Institute, gave a Keynote lecture on "Surface control of adhesion and growth factor mechanical and chemical crosstalk". Ada presented how local changes in the extracellular environment regulate cell responses through specific receptor-ligand interactions. In her presentation, she showed the design of material surfaces that combine adhesive ligands and growth factors at the nanoscale.

Lluis Oliver, PhD student at UPC, under the supervision  of Dr. Mas-Moruno, gave a flash presentation on "The Capacity of RGD and DWIVA Peptidic Biointerface to Transdifferenciate C2C12 Myoblasts into Osteogenic Lineage".
