NexT Initiative Research Grant

The STEP team is pleased to announce the funding of the SHELBY project by the NEXT initiative of the Nantes University (Internal Interdisciplinary Projects). SHELBY will be coordinated by Catherine Le Visage in collaboration with Claire Vinatier and Jerome Guicheux from RMeS laboratory, Denis Renard from the BIA laboratory (INRA UR 1268, Nantes) and Arnaud Tessier from the CEISAM laboratory (UMR CNRS 6230, Nantes). SHELBY will aim at developing a new generation of functionalized boronic acid hydrogels with self-healing properties and evaluating their ability to encapsulate mesenchymal stem cells and prevent osteoarthritis. The SHELBY project is funded for 1 year with possible extension up to 4 years and will be developed in the framework of Fabien Nativel’s PhD Thesis.
