The presence of a stem cell source in the epicardium that can be stimulated by exogenous delivery of transforming growth factor-β (TGF-β) and migrate towards the myocardium can represent a new approach to achieve cardiac repair following myocardial infarction. However, injection of drugs always requires use of carriers which help stabilize the...

To control fluid transport, microfluidic systems often make use of pressure driven flow and pneumatically actuated valves. However these require bulky external instrumentation. An integrated fluid control mechanism would make microfluidic systems more portable, closed and automated. The aim of this project was to create a pH-responsive membrane...

Counterfeiting of food and pharmaceutical products, albeit a more serious issue in developing countries is, however, omnipresent. Therefore, there is an ever-growing need for anticounterfeiting measures to address this challenge. Currently, the existing overt and covert anticounterfeiting measures are more prevalent on the packaging of such...

Colloidal allostery is a regulatory mechanism where specific metabolites regulate the protein activity by binding to them and changing their energy landscape. The first steps to model this system on a colloidal scale were made by studying the depletion interaction between the hydrogel posts and the rigid polystyrene particles. Using soft...
