"Laser microstructuring of materials for biomedical applications"

Maria Aymerich
Dep. Fisica Applicata, Universidade de Santiago de Compostela
A Coruña, Spain

In this talk, microstructuring of different materials with laser for biomedical applications will be presented. Firstly, we will comment how endothelial cell behaviour can be altered by modifying the surface topography of biocompatible materials using the Talbot effect and a microlens array. Secondly, the fabrication and biological validation of a microchip for capturing circulating tumour cells will be shown. Finally, we will focus on the design and fabrication of preclinical devices that mimic large blood vessels for performing flux experiments to study cardiovascular pathologies. The biocompatibility of the device will be presented as well as a study of different sol-gel coatings to enhance the lifetime of these devices.
