SACSIS is selecting a competitive candidate for the MSOC-Nanochemisty research group at the University of Castilla - La Mancha (UCLM) The proposed project fer this call is the construction of a hybrid material with stimuli-responsive delivery of bioactive agents. The material will be composed of a flexible and biocompatible hydrogel, doped with graphene derivatives (with orwithout magnetic nanoparticles), each componen! playing its individual role in the economy of the final product. The insertion of cells in these scaffolds will give us the possibility to evaluate whether the new hydrogels, composed of water for 95% of their weight, and containing growth factors, are good candidates fer neuronal cell cultures.
