Research Activities

My main research interests are focused on exploring microenvironmental stimuli to modulate mesenchymal stem cells (MSC) phenotype and secretory profile. The development of scalable and controlled culture systems implies a higher control over both physical and chemical cues. To that purpose, enhancing MSC exposure to paracrine factors through cells encapsulation and promoting delivery of small molecules by tailoring biomaterials are strategies that might be explored.
