Self assembling Biomaterials

Self-assembling biomaterials: molecular design, characterization and application in biology and medicine provides a comprehensive coverage on an emerging area of biomaterials science, spanning from conceptual designs to advanced characterization tools and applications of self-assembling biomaterials, and compiling the recent developments in the field. Molecular self-assembly, the autonomous organization of molecules, is ubiquitous in living organisms and intrinsic to biological structures and function. Not surprisingly, the exciting field of engineering artificial self-assembling biomaterials often finds inspiration in Biology. More important, materials that self-assemble speak the language of life and can be designed to seamlessly integrate with the biological environment, offering unique engineering opportunities in bionanotechnology. The book is divided in five parts, comprising design of molecular building blocks for self-assembly; exclusive features of self-assembling biomaterials; specific methods and techniques to predict, investigate and characterize self-assembly and formed assemblies; different approaches for controlling self-assembly across multiple length scales and the nano/micro/macroscopic properties of biomaterials; diverse range of applications in biomedicine, including drug delivery, theranostics, cell culture and tissue regeneration. Written by researchers working in self-assembling biomaterials, it addresses a specific need within the Biomaterials scientific community. Explores both theoretical and practical aspects of self-assembly in biomaterials Includes a dedicated section on characterization techniques, specific for self-assembling biomaterials Examines the use of dynamic self-assembling biomaterials

The objective of this thesis was to design self-assembling biomaterials whose physical and biological properties can be systematically adjusted to modulate cell growth and differentiation. The intended applications of these biomaterials include defined 3D cell culture scaffolds as well as coatings for existing prosthetics. The complex and dynamic nature of extracellular matrices necessitates the precise integration and adjustment of multiple physical, chemical, and biological features within engineered biomaterials, but this has been challenging for previous scaffolds owing to the fact

Self-assembling peptide-based biomaterials are promising for use in biomedical applications due to their inherent extracellular matrix-like structure, comparable nanofiber dimensions and responsiveness to cells and proteins. Among them, short peptides and their derivatives have been studied because of their ease of synthesis and bottom-up design for controlling fibrillar supra-structure. In this dissertation, nucleo-tripeptides which can self-assemble into a hydrogel form were designed based on considerations of their gelation conditions and applications to functional cell scaffolds and controlled drug release.
