Publication: Surface grafting of Fc-binding peptides as a simple platform to immobilize and identify

Omar's Master's thesis work was recently published in Biomaterials Science! He showed he could specifically capture endothelial colony forming cells (ECFC) from a population containing other peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMC) by using antibodies covalently conjugated to a surface in an optimal orientation. This work can be used in applications that require the specific recruitment of endothelial cells from blood such as with coronary stents used in cardiovascular disease.
