Functional biomaterials made of natural building blocks can offer significant advantages over purely synthetic systems, and the use of human proteins, functional peptides or nucleic acids as the precursor materials is common for the minimization of the immunogenicity of the delivery materials.
However, the biocompatibility and biodegradability of functional structures with desired properties is affected by the biomaterials’ structural characteristics and building block assembly pathways. Moreover, the elevated sensitivity of natural building blocks to environmental changes makes structural analysis of such biomaterial systems challenging.
In this webinar, we will discuss the use of non-invasive optical techniques (fluorescent and optical microscopy) to characterize structural aspects of biomaterials, towards improving the understanding of the relationship between the biomaterials structural properties and its functionality.
