Welcome to the biointerface lab!

At the biointerface lab we strive to understand and control phenomena occurring at the interface between synthetic materials and biological molecules. We are especially focused on biomineralization, and one of our main goals is to develop "surface interactive scaffolds" for soft and hard tissue regeneration, with a functional surface designed to induce or inhibit mineralization depending on the desired application, as well as a specific cellular response. Our surface-centered approach brings us to develop materials for drug delivery, dental applications, and (non bio-related!) energy and the environment. Our work is performed in collaboration with researchers from McGill, Canada and abroad.

  • Kaiwen's article was published on Chemistry of Materials, and was among one of the top downloaded articles in March!
  • Jan 2016 Jalani's article was published in JACS and selected as ACS editor choice!
  • December 2015 Jalani successfully defends his PhD thesis! Congratulations Dr. Jalani!
  • November 2015: Mandana left the group and joined MEDISCA as a Device Specialist. Congratulations!
  • October 2015: Sahar joined the group as a Postdoctoral Fellow. Her project is to improve adhesion between metal and plastic by surface modification techniques.
  • October 2015: Hesam successfully defends his PhD thesis! He is immediately hired by Bioastra Technologies as a Manager, Prototyping & Scale-up. Congratulations Dr. Mahjoubi!!!
  • September 2015: Emily joined the group as a PhD student. Welcome on board!
