Final Report - LIVEBIOMAT (Development of new polymeric biomaterials for in vitro and in vivo liver reconstruction)

Project ID: 13653
Funded under: FP6-NMP


The development of new intelligent materials able to activate specific responses in human liver cells could provide an inexpensive means of studying hepatic diseases and eventually, point the way to regeneration of the liver itself.

The Livebiomat project, funded under the Sixth Framework Programme, targeted the design and development of bioactive polymeric membranes and scaffolds for the reconstruction of a liver tissue model in vitro.

This final report of the Livebiomat project lists major achievements which include a scalable hepatic mini-bioreactor model, semi-permeable polymeric membranes with regularly distributed surface pores on which various plasma modification processes were applied.
