Details

Tittle:
Research team is looking to collaborate with companies and industries to develop improved artifical scaffolds for bone tissue engineering.
Summary:
A Greek research team developing artificial scaffolds for bone tissue is developing three novel materials of different chemical compositions with improved mechanical and biological performance for use as artificial 3D scaffolds in bone tissue regeneration. The research teem seeks industrial partners interested in implementing the method via a license or commercial agreement with technical assitance, or partners to further develop the technology via research or technical cooperation agreements.
Description:
Engineering arti¿cial scaffolds that enhance cell adhesion and growth in three dimensions is essential for successful bone tissue engineering.
The Greek laboratory team is working on the suitability of three novel materials of different chemical compositions in bone tissue regeneration. It is studying the mechanical properties of the aforementioned materials and evaluating the biological response of pre-osteoblastic cells on them, while it highlights the use of a 3D scaffolding technology.
The results show that while all three investigated materials could potentially be used as biomaterials in tissue engineering, the 50% 2-(Dimethylamino)ethyl methacrylate (DMAEMA) composite exhibits the best mechanical properties for structure fabrication with Direct Laser Writing (DLW) and strong biological response.
The advantages of this method include high strength, toughness, stability, mechanical properties and osteoconductivity. Also, the use of organic materials affects their interactions with cells; organic-inorganic materials display a high level of performance and are multifunctional; the use of multifunctional materials offers excellent balance between strength, toughness and tunable chemical -Y- mechanical characteristics.
The research team is looking for cooperation with a wide range of industrial partners that are interested in implementing the method through a license agreement or commercial agreement with technical assistance, or partners in the field intersted in developing the technology further through a technical or research cooperation agreement, or through participation in relevant calls for proposals of European funding programmes.
Advantages and Innovations:
The development of the engineered artificial scaffolds offer high strength, toughness and great stability. Also, they have important mechanical properties and osteoconductivity. The technology uses organic materials that affect their interactions with cells and organic-inorganic materials that demonstrate a high level of performance. These multi-functional materials also possess an excellent balance between strength, toughness, tunable chemical and mechanical characteristics and an advanced composite substrates that improve mechanical and biological performance.
Stage of Development:
Prototype available for demonstration
