Presentation Title: Investigating the Molecular Control of Collagen Biomineralization
Abstract: Mineralized collagen fibrils are the basic building blocks of various mineralized connective tissues. The process of collagen biomineralization is an intricate and highly controlled process which makes it difficult to study in vivo. To date, many in vitro models have been developed aiming to understand and mimic native collagen biomineralization. However, despite the recent advances, the molecular control of collagen biomineralization still remains unclear. I aim to study the effect of chemical and enzymatic collagen crosslinking, as well as the effect of glycosaminoglycan, an extracellular biomolecule, on collagen biomineralization. Findings from this study will result in an effective in vitro model that can highly mimic native collagen. It will also help with the development of collagen-based materials that will benefit tissue repair and regeneration applications.
