Biomineralization in Disease
Welcome to the Vidavsky Research Group in the Department of Chemical Engineering at Ben-Gurion University. Our team studies the interactions between biominerals and their surrounding tissue, focusing on chemical and biological conditions in the cellular microenvironment.
We characterize tissues that contain minerals, both clinical samples and biomaterials developed in our lab, to improve our understanding of biomineralization processes in disease.
In our research, we combine biomedical engineering and materials science approaches, including advanced imaging techniques and chemical characterization methods such as cryo-SEM imaging and vibrational spectroscopy mapping.
