Manufacturing of complex concave structures using additive manufacturing techniques
Developing additive manufacturing processes to produce complex shapes like tetrapods and dolos.
Biphasic membrane for vascular tissue engineering
The aim of this project is to develop a biomimetic biphasic membrane composed of a layer of elastomer and a layer of polymeric nanofibers in order to obtain a device able to bear large mechanical de-formations and to promote tissue formation for vascular tissue engineering purposes.
Development of chitosan based nanofibers for responsive drug release
The aim of this project is to develop electrospun membranes to be used for enhanced wound healing. Thereby bioactive substances extracted from medicinal mushrooms will be encapsulated within fibers and tailored for a pH- and thermo-sresponsive release.
Risk assessment of nanomaterials
Engineered Nanomaterials (ENM) are contained in many commercial products. During various stages of the life cycle of a product, ENM can be released into the environment. The aim of this work is to investigate release, flows and risks of ENM in the environment, based on a life-cycle perspective.
LICARA NanoSCAN - a web based tool for sustainable nanomaterials
Empa, TNO and the Nano-Cluster Bodensee designed the LICARA NanoSCAN together with partners from industry and science to help SMEs to develop sustainable innovative nanomaterials, products and applications. The LICARA NanoSCAN helps to assess the benefits and risks of nanomaterials.
