The primary motivation of NEUROSCAFFOLDS is to address the most challenging tissue to be repaired, i.e. the nervous system, where neurons cannot be assembled randomly, as in other tissues such as bones and liver.

our work plan

four main steps
1 - Development and fabrication of Scaffolds; 2 - Experimentation and testing of the formation of 3D neuronal networks; 3 - Analysis of long term survival of 3D neuronal networks; 4- Development and testing of scaffolds for implants.
