Call for open PhD and Post-Doc positions University of Florence (Department of Chemistry and European Laboratory for Non Linear Spectroscopy) Liquid Crystalline Elastomers to assist cardiac functions Duration: 3 years for PhD, 1 year (possibly renewable contract) for Post-Doc. Liquid Crystalline Elastomers (LCEs) are stimuli-responsive smart polymers, which are able to contract reversibly and generate force. We have demonstrated that photo-activated LCE stripes can be used to support muscle contraction of mouse trabeculae in vitro (Circ. Res. 2019, 124, e44–e54).…
