Why Cell Biointerface?

Cell-Material Interface, a Key to Regulating Cell Behaviors

Diverse cues from the cell microenvironment have increasingly emerged as important determinants to regulate the progression and recovery of many diseases. Moreover, healthy and diseased tissues exhibit markedly different characteristics of the cell microenvironment.

A Convergence Approach Provides Advanced Insights for Biomedical Platform Development

Engineering biomaterial systems allows us to mimic diseased cell microenvironments and develop improved cell culture platforms for ex-vivo conditioning. Then, how cells respond to the engineered materials can be thoroughly monitored through biomolecular engineering.

Engineering the cell-material interface based on this convergence approach would be a critical jumping-off point for developing biomedical platforms to address human disease issues.
