Development of a new biomaterials platform by combining biomimetics with microfluidics

Project Description

Synthetic biology enables engineering of bacterial cells to serve as cell factories for the assembly of novel material such as tailor-made biopolymers attached to protein functions which mediate deposition of inorganics such as found in tooth formation. Biomanufactured materials will be subjected to microfluidics to control the formation hierarchical architectures. The new materials design space will be explored toward uses in medicine and industry.
