CIC biomaGUNE is a non-profit research organization created to promote scientific research and technological innovation at the highest levels in the Basque Country following the BIOBASQUE policy in order to create a new business sector based on biosciences.


Research Highlights

Sugars of the glycosaminoglycan (GAG) family play important roles in the communication of cells with their environment, e.g. to guide immune cells to sites of inflammation. Together with researchers in Grenoble, the Richter Lab has developed a method to fabricate well-defined and tuneable biomimetic surfaces that display GAGs together with other biomolecules. The work, reported in the journal Biomaterials, enables novel functional studies with molecules and cells, to better understand the role of GAGs in cell-cell and cell-extracellular matrix communication.

Article: "Well-defined biomimetic surfaces to characterize glycosaminoglycan-mediated interactions on the molecular, supramolecular and cellular levels"
Authors: Elisa Migliorini, Dhruv Thakar, Rabia Sadir, Tino Pleiner, Françoise Baleux, Hugues Lortat-Jacob, Liliane Coche-Guerente, and Ralf P. Richter
