Location: SEMS Seminar Room
Mesenchymal stem cell response to nano topographical features (and other nanoscale stuff)
Dr. Matthew Dalby, University of Glasgow, Centre for Cell Engineering, Institute of Molecular, Cell and Systems Biology.
Abstract: The talk will explore the scale at which cells, including MSCs can respond to nanoscale information. Particularly discussed will be filopodial interaction, MSC targeted osteogenesis and MSC growth with retention of MSC phenotype using nanotopographies. Also discussed will be MSC metabolomics and selection of functional small molecules using nano fibrous hydrogels and recent observations on 'nanokicking' MSCs to form bone.
