Research title: Controlling the interfaces of supramolecular hydrogels for tissue culture application
The project focuses on the preparation and characterization of sugar-based low molecular weight compounds which have the capability to gel water. The aim for these novel materials is to combine low cytotoxicity and high biocompatibility, therefore making them suitable candidates for biomedical applications such as tissue cell culture.
