170411 nanoparticles as building blocks for development of self healing materials for regenerative medicine (mani diba), innoboot 2017

  1. 1. Nanoparticles as Building Blocks for Development of Self-Healing Materials for Regenerative Medicine. Mani Diba Department of Biomaterials Radboud University Medical Center 11th April 2017
  2. 2. 2 Regenerative Medicine Regenerative medicine is a multidisciplinary field which aims to repair or replace lost or damaged body parts. Three main components: • Biomaterials • Cells • Biomolecules
  3. 3. 3 Ideal Biomaterial for Regenerative Medicine But how to apply this “ideal” biomaterial???
  4. 4. How to apply a biomaterial? 4 Problem: When a material is extruded/injected, it experiences extensive shear forces Yielding and loss of mechanical integrity Solution: Self-healing biomaterials  Injection is the essential/preferred method in various applications including: 3D Printing Minimally Invasive Treatments
  5. 5. Self-Healing Materials 5  Materials that can heal themselves after damage How can we make a self-healing biomaterial?
  6. 6. Biomaterials for Regenerative Medicine 6 Strategies: Advantages of Bottom-up Precise control over building blocks Substantial control over bulk properties Building blocks as carrier for multiple drugs and/or growth factors Special properties, e.g. self-healing
  7. 7. Water Our Approach to self-healing biomaterials (A bottom-up strategy) 7  Nanoparticles as building blocks of colloidal (particle-based) gels: • Organic (e.g. gelatin) • Inorganic (e.g. bioactive glasses and ceramics) • Functionalization or loading with biomolecules/drugs
  8. 8. Self-healing in colloidal gels 8 Reversible self-assembly of nanoparticles Reversible bonds __ +
  9. 9. Why nanoparticles? 91Wang et al., Biomaterials, 33, 2012, 8695-8703. Micro vs. Nano Size matters!
  10. 10. Aim  To develop composite hydrogels with high elasticity and self-healing 10 Average Diameter ≈ 400nm (swollen) Average Diameter ≈ 80nm M. Diba, et al., Advanced Materials 2017, 1604672.

  17. 17. Conclusions 17 Nanoparticles are versatile building blocks for development of multifunctional biomaterials. Such biomaterials can be designed to: • Self-heal after mechanical damage • Stimulate bone regeneration • Locally deliver therapeutic drugs
  18. 18. Next steps…. 18  Development of gels with more bioceramic content and higher bioactivity  Large-scale production of the nanoparticles and gels through cooperation with: • Rousselot (world's leading producer of gelatin) • CAM Bioceramics (producer of bioceramic particles) • Smartodont (producer of bio-glass particles) We are open for collaboration with new business partners
