1st public workshop on the research project “MikroLas”

A first direct simulation of osteoblast and fibroblast on a micro-structured surface was presented in the workshop on January 22nd and 23rd about laser structured surfaces in the Yachthafenresidenz Hohe Düne.

More than one hundred cells are simulated simultaneously in the simulation box of the “virtual microscope” and allows a direct comparison to experiments on cell adhesion and growth on micro-structured surfaces. A realistic behaviour is obtained by parametrizations of cell properties like migration, proliferation and adhesion. At the same time the number on adhered cells is determined in significant less time than comparable experiments.
