Research on ultrasonic manipulation of tissue spheroids is supported by scholarships of MSU and the President of the Russian Federation
Tissue spheroids are conglomerates of living cells with a size of about 0.2 mm. From them, by using the acoustic radiation force for ultrasonic manipulation, viable tissues are formed, which perform the functions of organs and in the future will be able to replace non-viable human tissues. This approach will completely abandon the use of natural or synthetic biomaterials, the clinical use of which is associated with the risk of rejection and the development of inflammatory processes.
In collaboration with the 3D Bioprinting Solutions Laboratory a PhD student of LIMU Alisa Krokhmal is developing methods for ultrasonic manipulation of tissue spheroids. For her research, Alisa became a laureate of the rector's scholarship of Moscow University for young employees, graduate students and students who have achieved significant results in teaching and research activities for 2021, as well as scholarship of the President of the Russian Federation for students and postgraduates in priority areas of modernization and technological development of the Russian economy for the 2021-2022 academic year. Congratulations to Alisa!
