Research Activities


My research is focused on the development of biomimetic 3-D matrices for stem cell mediated bone formation, with a particular interest on evaluating the influence of non-collagenous proteins present in the bone matrix.
In bone tissue engineering, the generation of biomimetic microenvironments, using scaffolds containing cell recognition sequences in combination with bone cells, is one common strategy for improving scaffold integration and accelerating bone formation.
