On May 4th, our student Constancio González presented his thesis named «Study of the properties and applications of silk elastin-like recombinamers» under the supervision of  Prof. José Carlos Rodríguez Cabello and Prof. Alessandra

In his Thesis, Constancio developed several Elastin Like Recombinamers based on silk domains for their use into different applications such as mucoadhesion and wound healing.

Well done Ito! we wish you the best!

Our student Arturo Ibáñez Fonseca defended his thesis

Category : Defenses

Arturo Ibáñez Fonseca defended his thesis, entitled “Novel hydrogel-forming elastin like recombinamers for biomedical applications”, on the 24th of November 2017. In his thesis, carried out under the supervision of Fco. Javier Arias Vallejo and Matilde Alonso Rodrigo, Arturo studied the biocompatibility of ELR-based hydrogels to use them in the tissue engineering and regenerative medicine field. Specifically, he showed that these hydrogels promoted bone regeneration in vivo. Moreover, fluorescent hydrogels were also obtained, showing a Förster resonance energy transfer (FRET) when ELRs genetically fused to two different fluorescent proteins were combined to form the hydrogels. In summary, his thesis sheds light on the use of ELRs in biomedical applications.

Congratulations Arturo, we wish you the best!!
