Channelmat- Novel microstructured 3D hydrogels
Channels of subcellular size
Optimal Environment for cells
Materials providing a large cell-material contact area and well-defined mechanical properties are excellent for Controlling cells by mechanotransduction. Porous hydrogels provide such a solution.
- to create an Environment, which is favorable for cell growth
- to increase the contact area between cells and their surrounding Environment to optimize mechanotransduction
The innovative 3D biomaterial serves as a platform for Controlling mechanotransduction by mimicking natural 3D cellular Environments. It contains a novel form of microporous structures represented by micron-sized channels embedded in a hydrogel Matrix of a well-defined stiffness.
Channelmat wants to take the next step and is looking for:
infrastructure and know-how of Research-oriented companies
development of marketable concepts for novel products
knowledge Transfer into already existing products
