Next Generation Biomaterials Discovery

 
   

1) University of Nottingham, Boots Science Building, 2) Coated Catheter (Camstent Ltd), 3) Time-of-flight secondary ion mass spectrometer, 4) Cell Polymer Microarray (Asha Patel, 2015) 5) Patient stem cell-derived cardiac cells on topographies.

The EPSRC Programme Grant in Next Generation Biomaterials Discovery was launched in 2015 with the goal of identifying new biomaterials. The project will screen large diverse polymer libraries to identify bio-instructive materials for medical devices, stem cell manufacture, cell delivery and targeted drug delivery. 

The aim is to allow us to move beyond the existing limited range of polymeric drug and cell delivery agents and medical device polymers currently licensed for use in man, to bespoke materials identified to function optimally for specific applications.
