Functional Bio-inspired Porous Materials

Dr. Maleki's group focuses on the rational design of self-assembled and sol-gel derived bio-inspired hybrid smart nanomaterials as a theragenerative systems (combination of therapy and regeneration) with improved biomimetic microstructure, mechanical, self-healing and shape morphing properties for minimally invasive bone cancer therapy and bone regeneration and drug delivery purposes.

In our research we are specifically interested in designing biomaterials (hydrogels, and aerogels) with smart multifunctional properties through hybridization of self-assembled biopolymer with various surface engineered nanoparticles through the most advanced state-of-the-art synthesis and fabrication techniques like 3D printing and microfluidic systems.

With this advanced synthetic biomaterials, we would like to understand how the biomaterials-cell interactions can be regulated in order to enhance the cells osteoconductivity, osteoinductivity while also endowing anti-tumoral or anti-bacterial functionalities.
