Bio Electric Surface


Objectives of the BioElectricSurface project include the following

  • Benchmarking of electrically modified surfaces of specific biomaterials with the help of atomistic modelling and innovative nanoscale experiments
  • Benchmarking of biomaterials/biological interactions through quantitative information at the nano-, micro- and macroscopic scale
  • Electrical modification of cardiovascular stent surfaces to demonstrate restenosis prevention
  • Electrical modification of urological stent surfaces to demonstrate encrustation prevention
  • Proliferation of osteoblastic cells on electrically modified bone scaffolds/implants to increase bone growth stimulation.
  • Photosterilisation of nanoparticle-embedded fabric to make high performance reusable hospital gowns
