BME Seminars: Morgan ALEXANDER


This Friday 9th november, the BME seminars will host a lecture of Morgan ALEXANDER entitled " High Throughput Materials Discovery Adventures with Polymer Microarrays".
Morgan ALEXANDER is researcher from the University of Nothingham (See attached flyer)

Abstract:
" Polymer micro arrays have proven to be useful tools for the discovery of new synthetic materials to guide cell response to man-made materials. This high throughput materials discovery approach is attractive because, the paucity of understanding of the cell-material interface hinders the ab initio rational design of new materials. The large number of polymer chemistries that can be investigated on a single polymer micro array act as a wide net in the search for materials that can achieve a certain cell response. A critical component of the materials discovery process is high throughput surface characterisation employing chemometrics to handle the large amounts of complex data. Using this approach we have identified materials which show promise as substrates for pluripotent stem cell culture and coatings which resist bacterial attachment and biofilm formation with application in the reduction of medical device centred infection [Hook et al. Nature Biotech 2012].."

The conference will take place at Arts & Métiers ParisTech, 151 boulevard de l’Hôpital, 75013 Paris, Amphi Fournel, from 13h30 to 15h00.

To avoid disturbing the talk, please be there on time. Thank you !
