Spheroids are widely used in vitro 3D multicellular model systems that mimic complex physiological microenvironments of tissues. As different cell types vary in deformability and adhesion, the choice of (heterogeneous) cell composition will define overall spheroid mechanics, including their viscoelasticity and effective surface tension. These...

In nature, cells exist in three-dimensional (3D) microenvironments with topography, stiffness, surface chemistry, and biological factors that strongly dictate their phenotype and behavior. The cellular microenvironment is an organized structure or scaffold that, together with the cells that live within it, make up living tissue. To mimic...

This thesis presents a fabrication process for medical microfluidic devices that is performed with purely silicon microfabrication methods, which is a better option for mass-production than commonly used soft lithography. The fluids passing through the channels of a microfluidic device that is fabricated using this developed method can be...

People in both developing and developed worlds are increasingly facing musculoskeletal problems that require long-term clinical performance of orthopaedic implants including bone substitutes. Porous biomaterials could play an important role in improving the longevity and overall performance of orthopaedic implants and that is why they have been...

Cam impingement appears to be an important factor in the development of early osteoarthritis (OA) of the hip. A Cam is generally diagnosed in young and active adults, already at the age of thirteen. Therefore, it has been suggested that excessive femoral loading during skeletal development might trigger the abnormal morphology. The goal of this...

Modelling the course of healing of a long bone subjected to loading has been the subject of several investigations. These have succeeded in predicting the differentiation of tissues in the callus in response to a static mechanical load and the diffusion of biological factors. In this paper an approach is presented which includes both...
