Novel piezoelectirc peptide-based scaffold for 3D cell culture

Project description

An innovative scaffold for cell culture

Regenerative medicine entails the repair, replacement or restoration of damaged cells or tissues. Key to this strategy is the effective culture of stem or differentiated cells in vitro. To address technical issues associated with in vitro cell cultures, the EU-funded PiezoGel project has developed a novel system that combines a cell-supporting hydrogel with piezoelectric peptides capable of generating electrical energy in response to mechanical deformation. Researchers will optimise the PiezoGel technology for the in vitro growth of organoid cultures as well as for stem cell differentiation. Future applications include tissue regeneration and drug development.
