Bioactive peptide nanofibers for bone tissue regeneration
(Bilkent University, 2017-06)
Replacement and repair of bone tissue that is lost due to fractures, tumor resection, degenerative diseases and infections still remain major clinical challenges. Autografting, allografting and xenografting are the current ...
Design, synthesis and characterization of bioinspired nanomaterials for engineering and biomedicine
(Bilkent University, 2014)
Nature is an inspirational school for materials scientists. Natural selection process puts a massive pressure on biological organisms giving rise to effective strategies for fabricating materials, which generally outperform ...
Biomineralization with engineered cellular systems
(Bilkent University, 2019-08)
Hydroxyapatite (HAP) is the final product of bone biomineralization process and HAP formation is controlled by proteins, enzymes and small molecules secreted to extracellular matrix (ECM). Among these molecules, alkaline ...
