Like balsam on a wound
The Fraunhofer Institute for Microstructure of Materials and Systems IMWS is developing new biomaterials for dermal application in the project »SkinNext«. The researchers in Halle use the unique properties of the natural fibre proteins elastin and collagen for this. These have great potential for use in the fields of dermatology and cosmetics, such as for improved wound healing after burn injuries.
