The goal of the research project is to build a hybrid hydrogel capable of delivering bioactive molecules such as growth factors, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, anti-oxidants to promote tissue regeneration as well as mitigate oxidative stress and inflammation. These materials will be tested in two different contexts: the treatment of arthritic joints and regeneration of damaged neural tissue. The task of the candidate will be to develop suitable formulations incorporating multifunctional nanoparticles capable of transporting active compounds in a programmable fashion and to embed such nanoparticles in an injectable polymer matrix. The materials will be tested for their capacity to promote cellular proliferation and healing.
