Research interests

Dr. Cristina Gonzalez-Garcia is a Lecturer in the Biomedical Engineering Research Division of the School of Engineering of the University of Glasgow since 2016. She has a Bachelor in Chemical Engineering (2008) from the Universitat Politècnica de València. In 2012 she got a PhD in Biomedical Engineering with European mention and honors. Her research work was focused on investigating the role of an extracellular matrix protein (fibronectin) on mediating cell-material interactions. During her PhD studies, her research activity was complemented by several internships, at the Instituto de Engenharia Biomédica in Porto, 2009; Center for Cell engineering in Glasgow, 2010; and Institute for Bioengineering of Catalonia in Barcelona, 2012. Her thesis received special national and international Awards from the Universitat Politècnica de València and European Society for Biomaterials, respectively.

In 2012 she was awarded with a prestigious postdoctoral International Outgoing Marie Curie Fellowship to develop a research project in partnership with Georgia Institute of Technology in the USA and the University of Glasgow in UK. She worked on the development of a novel and versatile microfluidics-based platform for the control of protein delivery during processes of tissue regeneration. She also worked with different pre-clinical animal models to evaluate bone regeneration, vascularisation and osseointegration, which have been implanted at this University at present. Cristina currently works on material-based strategies to engineer tissue repair and regeneration, including the development of microgel systems for therapeutic protein delivery, in collaboration with Microenvironments for Medicine (MiMe) group of the University of Glasgow led by Professor Manuel Salmeron-Sanchez.
