Thesis research topic: Hollow fiber membranes and substrates based on them for hemodialysis and bioartificial liver applications
My research area is biomaterials for biomedical applications. The motivation behind the research is to develop organ assist devices to support organ failure/diseased patients until one finds suitable organ donor or self-organ regeneration. We have developed and tested lab-scale bioreactor to support kidney and liver failure patients.
