Responses of “excitable” cells (nerve cell) to biochemical, electrical and topographic cues in terms of enhanced neural differentiation and oriented neurite outgrowth.
Current research activities involve the development of a biodegradable polymer coating containing chelating agents which can control the degradation of metal alloy stents. I am response for in vitro cell culture studies involving growth of smooth muscle cells and endothelial cells on different alloys as well as polymer-modified materials.
