Computational modeling of cell-extracellular matrix (ECM) interactions

Hamidreza holds a bachelor’s and Master’s degree in Mechanical engineering. In his Ph.D. at the University of Groningen, he developed computational molecular dynamics models to study underlying molecular mechanisms in ALS disease. Following his interest in developing mechanistic models of biological processes, but this time at a different scale, he joined MERLN as a post-doc in June 2022. At cBITE, he works on modeling the cell-ECM interface using different computational techniques. To improve the design of synthetic biomaterials, it is crucial to understand the physiological cell-ECM interactions and how these influence cell behavior. This research project aims to use in-silico models to improve our understanding of cell-biomaterial interactions.
