The goal of the research project is to develop a bioadhesive material able to bound and debound remotely or upon application of a stimuli. Such material will be used as wet adhesive in microtissue engineering, drug delivery systems, and tissue repair. The project contemplates both fundamental and applied aspects of the development of the technology. At the fundamental level, characterization and rationalization of the structure-properties of the fabricated materials will be established using cell mimicking membranes and surface sensitive techniques. At the applied level, the bioadhesive materials will be used to produce multifunctional delivery systems able to release multiple active compounds and simultaneously to perform sensing tasks for imaging and diagnostic purposes. Depending on the qualifications of the candidate, certain aspects of the project could be more emphasized.
