Description

Tuning silk for healthcare
 

This week's seminar is to be presented by Dr Philipp Seib, University of Strathclyde.

Abstract: 

Silkis an important biopolymer for biomedical applications because of its uniqueand highly versatile structure and its robust clinical track record in humanmedicine. Silk can be processed into many material formats, includingphysically and chemically cross-linked hydrogels, nanoparticles and scaffoldsthat have almost limitless applications ranging from tissue engineering tobiomedical imaging and sensing. This presentation provides a background of silkand will cover drug and cell therapy using selected silk formats andprocessing.
