This cross-disciplinary study includes polymer synthesis and
characterization, preparation of scaffolds containing ceramics,
tailoring surface and bulk properties, cell culture studies with
stem cells and other cell lines for cranial defects and
endodontics applications, and in vivo animal experiments (e.g.
Sprague Dawley rats). Characterization techniques such as
FTIR, GPC, NMR, DSC, mechanical tests, µ-CT, SEM, confocal
microscopy, cell staining techniques applied for evaluation.
