We dream of changing the current paradigm in biomaterials research to focus on materials that mediate protein interactions and the inflammatory response.
With a focus on translational innovation, some technologies developed in this lab have already successfully been commercialized.
Surface chemistry characterization has shown us the importance of a heterogeneous surface on a biomaterial's blood and protein interactions.
The multidisciplinary lab is exploring the effect of shear stresses and cyclic distension on cell behaviour and tissue production.
A single scaffold platform developed in the Santerre lab can provide a basis for collaborative projects in many fields, including orthopaedic tissue regeneration, and soft connective tissue-to-bone attachment.
