Juergen Groll's Biography

Juergen Groll, Professor, University of Wuerzburg

Prof. Jürgen Groll holds the chair for Functional Materials in Medicine and Dentistry at the University of Würzburg. His research interest comprises applied polymer chemistry for life sciences, biomimetic scaffolds, immunomodulation, nanobiotechnology, and biofabrication. Within biofabrication, he coordinates the large European integrated project HydroZONES that focuses on the printing of layered constructs for cartilage regeneration. Since 2014, he also holds the ERC consolidator grant Design2Heal that concerns the evaluation of design criteria for immunomodulatory scaffolds.
Prof. Groll received his Ph.D. from the RWTH Aachen University with summa com laude in 2005. From 2005 to 2009, he worked in industry in the field of functional coatings and biocomposite materials. In parallel, he built up a research group on polymeric biomaterials at the DWI Interactive Materials Research Institute in Aachen. He is board member of the international society for biofabrication and editorial board member of the journal Biofabrication. His work has been recognized by several awards such as the PhD thesis award of the German Society for Biomaterials in 2005, the Bayer Early Excellence in Science Award 2009, the Reimund-Stadler award of the Division of Macromolecular Chemistry of the German Chemical Society in 2010 and the Unilever Prize of the Polymer Networks Group in 2014.

This lecture will introduce thiol-ene cross-linking as alternative to free radical polymerization to stabilize printed hydrogel structures. Furthermore, a purely physically cross-linked system based on recombinant spider silk proteins will be introduced, in which beta-sheet interactions facilitate good printability and stability of the constructs.
