On July 11th, our student Mohammed Hamed Misbah presented his thesis named “Controlled Formation of Nanostructures Based on Elastin-like Recombinamers” It was carried out under the supervision of Prof. José Carlos Rodríguez Cabello and Prof. Luis Quintanilla Sierra.
In his Thesis, Mohammed study the synergistic combination between multiple and outstanding properties stemmed from different materials: elastin-like recombinamers (ELRs) inspired by natural elastin, calcium phosphate and carbon nanotubes (CNTs). Understanding of such fundamental processes aims to construct new ELRs and develop new functional materials, thus transferring new ideas to artificial materials and different applications.
Well done Mohammed! we wish you the best!
