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.
