Our student Miguel González defended his Thesis

On December 9th, our student Miguel González Pérez presented his thesis entitled «Development of elastin-like recombinamers with increasing complexity and functionality from the molecular to the macroscopic scale» developed under the supervision of Prof. José Carlos Rodríguez Cabello.

In his thesis, Miguel investigated how the stiffness of surfaces can be tuned by assembling genetically engineered elastin-like recombinamers (ELRs) with tailored amino acid sequence, the controlled production of ELR polymer-based membrane at a liquid-liquid interface by click chemistry and the development of a biocasting technique for manufacturing an ELR and collagen bi-layered model of the tunica adventitia and external elastic lamina of the vascular wall.

Well done Miguel! We wish you all the best!
