Synthetic materials contribute to regenerative medicine by providing structure and guidance to stem cells. Targeted nanotherapeutics utilize man-made nanoparticles that can mimic natural structures and deliver molecular payloads. Conductive bio-resorbable materials have been developed that are flexible to minimize tissue damage and enable the integration of electronics with biological systems.
The potential for 3D printing to create useful, intricate, customized macrostructures has led us to incorporate unique materials into a printable, curable ink. By addressing experimental needs across a range of research areas, SQI is in a prime position to develop cutting-edge knowledge that enables the development of new, highly functional materials.
