FMS researchers publish in Nature Communications

Prof. Bert Meijer and prof. Maarten Merkx (TU/e and ICMS) and coworkers published an article in Nature Communications, where they demonstrate the ability to control protein activity by dynamic recruitment on supramolecular polymer platforms. This work demonstrates the strength of synthetic supramolecular polymers as an ideal protein recruitment platform and shows that the assembly of […]

Wilhelm Huck and coworkers publish in Nature Communications

Professor Wilhelm Huck and coworkers (RU) recently published their work in Nature Communications. They present a method to control both the cell volume and shape of individual mesenchymal stem cells (hMSCs) within 3D microniches in a multitude of different geometries. These 3D microniches enable fundamental studies on the impact of biophysical cues on cell fate. […]
