Dr. Silva aims to produce, characterize and validate naturally-occurring polymers that can be used as biomaterial systems for therapeutic applications. These polymeric materials can both mimic or enhance the signaling between and within cell populations and regulate tissue regeneration. The systems described in his research could represent an attractive new generation of therapeutic delivery vehicles for the treatment of various diseases, particularly vascular diseases.
