CHEG 325 Fundamentals of Nanotechnology

Scientist 1:

 

Name: Prof. Antonios Mikos

 

Affiliation: Departments of Bioengineering, and Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering, Rice University, USA

Description of activities:

Prof. Miko’s work focuses on nanostructured biomaterials, drug delivery systems, gene therapy, and tissue engineering. It emphasizes the use of synthetic biodegradable polymers and nanostructures as:

·        
Supportive scaffolds for cells

·        
Conduits for guided tissue growth

·        
Specific substrates for targeted cell adhesion

·        
Stimulants for a desired cellular response

·        
Carriers for controlled drug delivery

·        
Non-viral vectors for gene therapy

 

3 major contributions in the field:

1.     
Bone regeneration and repair using a biodegradable polymer scaffold, either by inducing post-implantation bone tissue growth or by seeding the scaffold with bone cells prior to implantation

2.     
New rapid prototyping processing methods for manufacturing three-dimensional biodegradable polymer scaffolds of anatomical shapes with precise architecture

3.     
Injectable, in situ polymerizable, biodegradable composite scaffolds as carriers for bone and cartilage cells to improve the quality of tissue formed in localized areas after injury
