Nomination for the Polish Intelligent Development Award 2018

Dorota Kołbuk-Konieczny has been nominated for the prestigious award - Polish Intelligent Development Award 2018 under the patronage of the President of the Patent Office of the Republic of Poland, Dr. Alicji Adamczak. The nomintion of Dr Kołbuk-Konieczny is connected with in the project entitled Development of bioactive, hybrid material for ACL ligament regeneration (NCBiR Leader) in the category of Innovative Young Leader science. More information about the previous editions of the competition on Polish Intelligent Development Award website


The Polish Intelligent Development Award is a response to the new EU perspective 2014-2020. The winners are people and institutions implementing innovative projects on a European and global scale, as well as entities implementing innovative investments that have an impact on the sustainable and intelligent development of the country, thus raising the standard of living of the local community. Projects can be implemented from European, national or own funds. The aim of PNIR is to distinguish innovative and innovative activities and their promotion among the widest possible group of public opinion.

 
Thank you for the nomination!

 

 

Uniaxial stretch has positive effect on ligament fibroblasts

Mechanical strain in the ligament exerts impact on function of cells building this tissue. Sun L. and co-workers have shown in their recent publication that exposing fibroblasts and mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) to uniaxial or radial strain can promote cell proliferation and collagen production. Interestingly, fibroblasts and MSCs have their own appropriate mechanical stimulatory parameters. Whereas uniaxial stretch and radial strain have stimulatory effects on MSCs, only uniaxial stretch induces stronger proliferation of ligament fibroblasts. These results underline specific characteristic of different cell types and provide important knowledge in aspect of cell-based ligament regeneration and  tissue engineering [Sun L. et al. Stem Cells International 2016;2016:9842075].

Rotating collector is ready to work!

Laboratory Services Centre  (cul.ippt.pan.pl) was designed and built rotary collector for the purposes of the Ligamed project. This equipment allows the collection of fibers / nonwovens with two nozzles, the speed of rotation of the drum and the shift drum is regulated due to appropriate software. The fibers may be collected on a collector drum and a disc of different diameter. The collector is equipped with a touch screen contracting controlling speed and direction of rotation; significantly reduced the amount of metal in the construction of the collector ensures good distribution of electrical charges, which is unique compared to the collectors available on the market.

We thank Lukasz Cichacki and his team for taking on task of constructing our collector, reliability and commitment.

Our presence on BIOMATERIALS FOR HEALTHCARE conference

PhD Dorota Kolbuk-Konieczny was the participant of the BIOMATERIALS FOR HEALTHCARE: Biomaterials for Tissue and Genetic Engineering and the Role of Nanotechnology Conference in Rome  between 17-20 of October of the 2016. She presented data about “Tailoring of mechanical properties by molecular orientation in polymeric scaffolds”. Co-authors of the report published in  conference Book of Proceedings (ISBN 978 88 8080 214 3) are Piotr Denis and Olga Urbanek. The main strategy of the conference were to promote the development of innovative, smart- biomimetic nanomaterials for tissue regeneration-pharma-dental industry and fundamental knowledge in biomaterial-cell interactions .  It was a great possibility to meet Professors from 25 countries and their current-innovative study from above mentioned topics.

We bought a goniometr!

After long consideration we decided to purchase a goniometr, for contact angle measurements etc. from Data Physics. New device is in our lab from 25th July 2016. This device is important for analysis of surface properties of scaffolds which we are forming for ACL regeneration. Thanks to NCR&D we spread our analytical abilities!

Ultrasonic homogenizer

Thanks to NCR&D we could buy a new equipment, crucial for formation of bioactive scaffold for ACL regeneration. We chose ultrasonic homogenizer from Hielscher version UP200Ht, which was delivered 24th July 2016 to our laboratory. We are excited about new possibilities which give this device.

New electrospinning setup

We have started build a new electrospinning set up, which will allows to produce aligned fibers, which will form bioactive scaffold. Moreover, new syringe pumps have been delivered on 20th June 2016.

Time to start!

We would like to inform that on 1st April 2016, project Development of bioactive, hybrid graft for regeneration of ACL ligaments has been started. We will inform you on Ligamed website about our current activity!

 

Contract with the National Centre of Research and Development has been signed

We would like to inform that on 1st April 2016, project Development of bioactive, hybrid graft for regeneration of ACL ligaments has been started. We will inform you on Ligamed website about our current activity!

We would like to inform that 12th October 2015 we have signed contract with the National Centre of Research and Development for financial support of Ligamed project. We look forward for new chalanges which will bring work in this project. 

 

The National Centre of Research and Development granted our project!

Great news for us have come from the National Centre of Research and Development! Our research project, Development of bioactive, hybrid graft for regeneration of ACL ligaments called LIGAMED and submitted by Dr. Dorota Kołbuk-Konieczny has been accepted for financial support by this institution on 2nd  October 2015. Thanks to this help we will be able to develop our idea of bioactive scaffold for ligament regeneration, which will be prepared by electrospinning technique. We believe that our ideas will help to make another step to improve treatment of damaged ACL, as well as will improve quality of patients life after trauma.
