Agustina Aldana

Postdoc

Designing dynamic hydrogels for regenerative medicine

Agustina started a PhD in Chemical Sciences after she finished her Licentiate’s degree in Chemistry at the National University of Cordoba, Argentina. She was working on chemical modification of biopolymers. While she was working on the project focused on developing chitosan films as wound dressing, she discovered her interest in the merge between biomaterials and regenerative medicine. As a postdoctoral researcher, she have been working on the biofabrication of scaffolds for regenerative medicine using processing techniques such as electrospinning and bioprinting. Here in MERLN she is working on the design of dynamic soft materials with supramolecular or reversible interactions for additive manufacturing and studying how cells interact with these dynamic matrices.
