Protein self-functionalisation: evolving the hydrogel paradigm

By LifETIME CDT Student: Alexandre Trubert (University of Glasgow) The field of tissue engineering has greatly excelled in recent years, scientists are now able to heal a variety of body tissues ranging from bone defects to whole internal organs; the practice of tissue engineering pivotally relies on materials compatible with the body, termed biomaterials, that act as scaffolds to guide tissue regeneration. Engineers have a variety
