Lasers and Light Source guided Osteogenesis and Angiogenesis for Tissue Engineering


   Faculty of Engineering and Physical Sciences

  , ,  Applications accepted all year round  Competition Funded PhD Project (Students Worldwide)

About the Project

The project will investigate the growth of osteoblast and endothelial cells in in vitro model on a given bone scaffold and investigate the light-induced cell induction and conduction for osteogenesis and angiogenesis. 

The biophysical aspect of the interaction of lasers in the cell culture and corresponding metabolic changes were characterized. The impact of laser power and induced changes (toxicity, cell damage, cell proliferation) will be analyzed. The research, if time permits, maybe continued by using the human stem cells for light-induced cell differentiation for angiogenesis and osteogenesis. Industry support and training may be offered as well.
