Bone defects in fields such as orthopedics can occur as a consequence of injury, cancer or inflammation, and their reconstruction remains challenging. Bone tissue engineering is a promising alternative for the use of bone material from another part of the person’s body, and involves the use of a combination of scaffolds, cells (including stem cells), and physical and/or chemical stimuli to improve or replace bone. The aim of Francis van Esterik’s research is to investigate stem cell behaviour in biomaterials in light of its implications for bone tissue engineering. She studies the interaction of stem cells with biomaterials, using different cell types and a variety of biomaterials.
