Creating a scaffold topological atlas to influence biological functions of stem cells

Kenny finished his Master’s degree in Biomedical sciences in 2017. After which he started a PhD at MERLN. His main focus is trying to understand the influence of pore geometry on induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cells. Previous studies show that cellular response changes with different pore geometries. However, this behaviour has not been explored using iPS cells. His aim is to help steer these stem cells towards one of the three lineages by changing the pore geometry.
