DFG Research Grant: Designing Collagen-Inspired Template-[Protein]3-Hybrids: From Switchable High Molecular Weight Nanostructures Towards Processing Collageneous Materials for Cell Culture


Objectives of the joint project are the synthesis of collagen-inspired, template-protein hybrids with high molecular weight. Switchable templates enable activation of self-assembly into anisotropic nano-objects with collageneous triple helices. The processing of these objects to fibres, nonwovens or films will provide macroscopic nanostructured materials with directional internal structure.
