Unlocking the potential of human organoids through bioengineering

In a new review published in the prestigious scientific journal Nature Materials, IBEC experts discuss together with international experts from USA and Europe how bioengineering could be applied for the presentation of external inputs to better guide self-organisation and differentiation of human pluripotent stem cells (hPSCs) in order to generate higher-grade organoids

Microrobots mobility and ionic strenght: theory and experiments reveal their relationship

The group of ICREA Professor Samuel Sánchez at IBEC leads a work revealing that the self-propelled movement of microrobots depends on the amount of salts, called ionic strength, present in the liquid they navigate in. By combining theoretical and experimental work, researchers develop a model explaining the relationship between ionic strenght and mobility.
