biomimetic therapeutic hydrogel layers for interaction with corneal tissues

Objective

"Design and development of biocompatible and biomimetic polymers, in the form of hydrogels as soft tissue analogues for biomedical applications, especially those related to the cornea such as contact lenses. Synthesis of nanoparticles to encapsulate therapeutically active molecules and development of a hydrogel layer encapsulating the loaded nanoparticles for contact lenses technology improvement. Development of methods to detect living tissue-biomaterial interactions. The project will encompass synthesis, fabrication, physico-chemical characterization and in vitro testing."
