SCM – Science Management

The pathway and speed with which a biomedical innovation arises from an idea or invention, are today seen as a multidimensional, iterative process. To influence on this process SCM is pursuing currently two different approaches.

AMB - Advanced Materials for Biomedicine

Laura De Laporte develops biohybrid and bioinspired materials for advanced medical applications, for example to replicate the complex structure of natural tissues. To achieve this, she is working on new synthetic material concepts and new methods of manufacture, combining engineering, chemistry and biology to design biomaterials that control and direct the interaction with cells. Her team designs low-invasive, polymeric regenerative hydrogel therapies, consisting of nano –and micron-scale building blocks that orient after injection to repair anisotropic tissues, such as the spinal cord. In addition, dynamic hydrogels are created for drug delivery and to study mechanobiology.
