Collagen Composites: Modification of collagen gels with metallic nano-particles changes the structure of the gel and its properties.
Transport in Hydrogels: Fluorescence recovery after photobleaching (FRAP) and electrochemical time-of-flight (ETOF) are used to study diffusion within hydrogels.
Long Term Sensor Implantation: Control over the cell motility can become a major factor in improving the implantable sensor time of operation within the body.
Peptide Self-Assembly: Formation of fibers and sheets from self-assembled peptides results in novel materials with potential applications in biotechnology.
Peptide-Based Porous Materials: Controllable crystallization of a peptide can lead to fully organic porous materials with long range order.
