Artificial Cells with Distributed Cores to Decipher Protein Function

Project description

Mimicking living systems at the microscale

Living systems such as tissues, organs and organelles undertake specific biological processes within compartments to achieve greater efficiency. Being able to recapitulate this functional confinement artificially would open up novel possibilities for technological advancement in the biomedical field. The EU-funded ACDC project will take advantage of lab-on-a-chip technology and microfluidics to develop a functional platform that can be programmed and reconfigured for theranostics or environmental applications. The generation of responsive architectures will follow the hierarchy of living systems, and the resultant capsules will be able to inter-communicate like micro-laboratories, carrying out biochemical or chemical reactions.
