Materials for Regenerative medicine, Drug delivery and Cosmetics
Materials for medical use have very strict requirements. Among all the materials adopted, polymers have a good combination of properties to be used in very different context: from drug delivery to prosthesis and scaffolds. Nature itself uses several polymers to build living organisms: cellulose, chitin, collagen and keratin are polymers used to build all plants and animals Together with our activity of development of innovative materials for scaffolding ,we study the use of natural polymers such as carbohydrates (cellulose, alginate, pectin) or proteins (silk fibroin and wool keratin) as materials for scaffold, drug delivery and resorbable devices.
