Project description

Adopting a new technique for improved skin manufacturing

In recent years, a surge in interest in health sciences has led to a wide variety of technologies being researched, one of which is highly relevant to the field of regenerative medicine. A recent development in this field has to do with research focused on artificial skin in vitro, a key factor in the manufacture of which is the deposition of particle-laden coatings. Unfortunately, this sector has been facing problems as the manufacture of artificial skin is challenging. The EU-funded project COCONUTE aims to adapt the technique of dip-coating to overcome the challenges of current skin manufacturing technologies. Gaining new knowledge about the procedure will enable the creation of compound coatings that exhibit well-controlled arrangements of particles with physical properties that are similar to skin cells.
