Exploring and engineering the cell-material interface for regenerative medicine

Project summary

Professor Stevens takes the approach of exploring the cell-material interface and then engineering it to deliver a new generation of cell instructive biomaterials. The overall goals of her work are to develop state of the art materials and characterisation approaches so that she can identify subtle phenotypic changes in cell differentiation or biological activity in response to engineered materials implanted in the body. Professor Stevens’ innovation of novel biomaterials that actively interact with the body will contribute to her ultimate aim of the regeneration of failing organs.
