About this seminarIn this talk I will discuss different projects that I worked on in bone tissue engineering field. The first project covers the production and characterization of lyophilized collagen sponges with in situ calcium phosphate formation and their effects on osteogenic differentiation of mesenchymal stem cells, derived from Wharton’s jelly tissue of the umbilical cord and menstrual blood stem cells. The second project concernes the production and in vitro evaluation of a double-layered dental membrane, to be used in implant surgeries for guided bone regeneration. The third project is about the determination of antimicrobial properties of the phenolic compounds carnosol and carnosic acid, their cytotoxic effect on various bone tissue derived cell lines in 2D and 3D cultures. The last two projects aim to understand the effect of mechanical vibrations on osteogenic differentiation of mesenchymal stem cells on filter paper-based scaffolds in a planar and in a perfusion/vibration system.
