Message from the Executive Director
The focus of the Center for Biosurfaces' research program is on understanding, prediction, and control of biological adhesion. Multidisciplinary studies of the mechanistic details (including physical-chemistry, biochemistry, and biophysics) of "conditioning" film formation, biopolymer deposition, and cell and protein adhesion to synthetic materials and model tissues are in progress.
