1 Electrospun polymer structures for the manufacturing of biomaterials An important aspect of tissue engineering is the ability to imitate the fibrous extracellular matrix (ECM) in the way that fundamental principles of cell organization, survival, and function can be provided. One of the most important methods for the mimicking ECM is electrospinning. The doctoral thesis will cover the preparation of new polymeric biomaterials for medical applications (e.g. tissue scaffolds) using the electrospinning technique. As part of the research, the PhD candidate will synthesize new polymer structures based on carbon dioxide derivatives, and then optimize the parameters of the electrospinning process of nanofiber mats. An important aspect of the work will be the characterization of obtained structures, such as: assessment of the morphology of fibers, their porosity, strength, thermal and thermomechanical properties, biodegradability and biocompatibility. As part of the planned research, it will be possible to complete a research internship abroad.
