Project title: Multifunctional composites biologically active for applications in regenerative medicine of bone system. Project is carried out within the TEAM NET programme of the Foundation for Polish Science

Project description:

The aim of the project is to develop new polymer-ceramic composite biomaterials designed for applications in bone regenerative medicine. As part of cooperation of all research teams, porous implants for bone tissue regeneration and bone stabilizing implants covered with innovative coating materials will be developed. The innovative solution on the coating materials market will be a collagen coating containing both hydroxyapatite and the active substance, i.e. clindamycin. The breakthrough achievement will be to obtain a composite implant that will have the ability to stimulate bone cells by mechanical transduction and release clindamycin and factors: TGF-beta and VEGF.

Key responsibilities:

  1. Evaluation of cells and tissues exposed to biomaterials and their pre-fabricates, as well as porous implants with the use of confocal, fluorescent and electron microscopy techniques;

  2. Preparation, staining and immunostaining of cells and tissue fragments for microscopy;

  3. Preparation and implementation of workshop(s) related to the use of confocal micro- and macro- scopy in biological research;

  4. Keeping project documentation in terms of content;

  5. Preparation of scientific reports;

  6. Presentation and dissemination of the obtained results.

Profile of candidates/requirements:

  1. PhD degree in the field of biological sciences, biotechnology (or similar) no longer than years after PhD defend (the beginning of this period is a year of diploma obtaining, and the end is a year of application deadline);
