Christine Dupont-Gillain

Christine Dupont-Gillain is a lecturer at the Faculty of Bioengineering and Research associate at the Institute for Condensed Matter and Nanosciences. Main fields of research: proteins and cells at interfaces, design of nanostructured surfaces for cell engineering.

Her talk focused on Tissue Engineering as a promising approach to repair damaged or diseased tissues. While cells are usually seeded in a scaffold before implantation, the production of cell sheets constitutes an alternative offering many advantages. The harvesting of such cell sheets is however challenging. Recently, smart surfaces have been elaborated, that allow intact cell sheets to be collected by means of a simple temperature change.
