The INM's research group Dynamic Biomaterials develops dynamic polymer materials to study the cellular mechanoresponse and adaptation. One exciting research line involves synthetic biointerfaces containing light-responsive molecular motors that can activate cellular processes by applying molecular forces with spatiotemporal control. To fully develop this tool and understand the cell response during force application, we aim to couple the current biomaterial/biointerface design to molecular technologies to quantify the applied forces by the motor in situ, and also those exerted by the cells in response.Details…
