Israel’s thesis called: “Biofunctional hydrogels based on elastin-like recombinamers as substitutes of extracellular matrix” has won the European Doctorade Award 2015, granted by the European Society of Biomaterials. The new created hydrogels are able to induce tissue regeneration, bone healing and avoids the rejection of body foreign materials like titanium stents.
Congratulations for winning the Second Prize in GEP’s Award of 2012 in the best PhD thesis competition of the Spanish Polymer Group “GEP” a division of the Spanish Royal Society of Chemistry and the Spanish Royal Society of Physics. Her thesis titled “Stimuli-Responsive Systems Based on Elastin-Like Recombinamers for Biomedical Applications” was carried out in our group BIOFORGE, under the direction of Matilde Alonso Rodrigo and José Carlos Rodríguez Cabello
Congratulation to Matilde Alonso, F. J Arias and J. Carlos Rodriguez-Cabello to obtain the Awards Competition 2009 “CAMPUS EMPRENDE” in the category of business venture entitled:”New material in Biomedical Area”.
