Gaétan Laroche is Professor at Laval University, Québec.
His conference will be preceded by a short communication by Gaëtan Cabon (ISCR PhD student - Metallurgical Chemistry team).
Surface engineering finds applications in several fields of the human activity. For instance, surface modification technologies are currently used to improve the adhesion of paint on plastics for the automobile industry or to manufacture water repellant plastic films for food packaging. Because the interactions of biomaterials with the human body mainly proceed through the surface of biomedical devices, surface modifications were also applied to interface man-made materials with the biological environment.
One of the objectives of the surface engineering laboratory is to develop strategies to improve the biocompatibility of biomedical devices. During this webminar, he will present some of the research projects ongoing in his laboratory in which plasma-based surface modifications are coupled with conjugation of biomolecules to improve the biocompatibility of biomaterials. More specifically, He will focus on :
- the determination of the surface chemistry of plasma-treated materials from the plasma characteristics
- the micropatterning of peptides to promote the differentiation of mesenchymal stem cells.
