bioMAT4EYE

Neoteric Biomaterials for hIPSCs Monitorized Differentiation to RGCs: Creation, Microfabrication & Microfluidics

The bioMAT4EYE  project will develop new advanced supporting materials for iPSC (Induced Pluripotent StemCells) cell culture to grow in and wherein iPSC cells can be differentiated into new cell types such as RGC cells (retinal ganglion cells). The new supporting materials will be the basis for cell therapies of patients with damages inflicted on the optic nerve in the eye (optic neuropathies).
