Posted in Partners achievements on 14.03.2019
"A novel method is presented to biofabricate anisotropic nanocomposite hydrogels through a mild and biocompatible process driven by multiple external stimuli: magnetic field, temperature, and light. The functionality of this stimuliresponsive hydrogel is studied creating i) 3D cell-instructive platforms for in vitro morphogenesis, and ii) a 3D printable magnetoresponsive ink for fabricating small-scale bioinspired soft robots"
