Welcome to the European Society for Biomaterials

A year-long 'virtual environment' where scientists, clinicians, industrials and regulatory affairs experts can network.

International visibilityA great place to share

We aim to champion initiatives that enhance awareness regarding the environmental impact of our research and the operations of the European Society for Biomaterials. Our goal is to minimise environmental damage while maintaining a commitment to high-quality research aimed at advancing human health, as opposed to just maintaining research at a high level.

A Colourful Cuddle
In this experiment, human mesenchymal stem cells (stained with phalloidin) and cell-adhesive microgels (stained with ATTO565 (red) and FITC (green)) self-assembled into a living microtissue. The properties of these cell-adhesive microgels are both physically and chemically tuneable. Moreover, the cell-adhesive microgels are able to direct the behaviour of the cells, for example by influencing cell fate by microgel stiffness.
Instrument used to produce the image: Zeiss LSM880

I am Viswanath Vittaladevaram, PhD Researcher from University of Galway, part of lifETIME CDT Programme. I did my Master's degree in Biotechnology from University of Bangalore, India and later gained research experience working in industry. Later,moved to Germany and acquired research experience in bioinformatics focusing on modelling and simulation. I am currently doing my research on modelling blood-brain barrier using a combination of computational and experimental approaches complementing each other at University of Galway in collaboration with CÚRAM,SFI research centre for medical devices and partnered with University of Glasgow,Aston & Birmingham,UK.

I have obtained research experience in different areas of biological and chemical sciences ranging from bioinformatics, microbiology, biochemistry, plant sciences and molecular biology. Since from past 2 years, my work is majorly focused on computational chemistry using Insilico approaches and later will be complementing with experimental procedures.
