Cells grow in a gel-like environment, called the extracellular matrix. The properties of the ECM are crucial for cell behaviour and over the years many hydrogels have been developed to function as an artificial matrix. Some cells, however, require an ordered gel environment, which cannot be provided by simple synthetic gels.
As a PhD Candidate, you will develop new approaches towards the organisation of different hydrogels. In addition, you will (quantitatively) characterise the anisotropy in the materials.
The research project is a collaboration within the Research Centre for Functional Molecular Systems (fmsresearch.nl/). Once anisotropic gels have been developed, you will closely collaborate with our FMS partners to use these materials in cell culturing experiments.
The core of the project will be carried out in the Molecular Materials Group of the Institute for Molecules and Materials at Radboud University. The group specialises in the development of functional biomimetic hydrogels.
Are you interested in our excellent employment conditions?
