Catch Bond Cross-linked Hydrogels

Project description

A closer look at the ‘catch’ bond behaviour

The EU-funded CatchGel project aims to expand the boundaries of biology and materials science, from the molecular to the macroscale. The researchers will focus on the intrinsic workings of bacterial catch bonds, specifically environmental factors affecting their behaviour. They will also study how their behaviour is modified or scaled by inclusion in a macroscale material. By studying the ‘catch’ bond behaviour, the project will investigate their ability to revolutionise biomimetic materials.
