Area C: Supraparticles
Melis Yetkin
Supraparticles are agglomerates of primary nano- or microparticles. Supraparticles with complex structures can be fabricated by evaporating dispersion drops from superamphiphobic surfaces. My aim is to gain control over the structure of supraparticles by tailoring the process conditions and the shape of the primary building blocks.

Supramolecular Hydrogels for 3D-Bioprinting – Yuqing Wang
Printing of biologically functional constructs is significant for applications in tissue engineering and regenerative medicine. The focus of my PhD project is the development of dynamic supramolecular hydrogels for extrusion-based 3D-bioprinting show shear-thinning properties and rapid gelation and interactions with cells.
