Del Borgo lab news

Behind every treatment that improves human health is a story of discovery. Every day we make new research discoveries and forge partnerships that have a global impact. Dr Del Borgo’s work has featured in many outlets. Here are some of the highlights:

Dr Del Borgo’s research

We recently published on the introduction of functional motifs within a b-peptide scaffold for the growth and survival of primary neurons which was selected as the featured article and covered in the press. For the first time, we were able to show it is possible to attach self-assembling beta peptides onto different organic molecules. Published in the journal APL Bioengineering, our study shows that molecules that have previously posed challenges to bioengineers can now be used to make new kinds of biomaterials supporting the growth or nerve cells, potentially opening up new possibilities for patients who have experienced a stroke or traumatic brain injury.
