Our group’s research line focuses on shaping living matter. We adapt “classical” fabrication techniques to the constraints imposed by increasingly labile biological entities—from biomacromolecules up to living cells—to develop materials that find applications as diverse as 3D cell culture, tissue engineering or cryobiology. Our interests range from the fundamental physico-chemical events taking place during materials processing (phase separation, concentration gradients, crowding, and others) to the proof of concept in health-related applications.
Our main shaping tool is ice!
