This Marie Skłodowska-Curie Individual Fellowship (BIOeSPUN scaffolds) aims to fabricate and characterize novel type of multilayered scaffolds suitable for interface tissue engineering applications, in  particular for osteochondral segment regeneration. The project will be focused on the integration of several scaffold fabrication techniques for the development of novel electrospun multilayered scaffolds. In particular, considering the well-known effects of bioactive glass on osteogenesis, angiogenesis and its antibacterial activity, electrospun bioactive glass mats will be fabricated. Moreover, bioactive glass particles will be considered to fabricate bioactive glass-doped electrospun mats. Innovative solutions will be adopted for achieving stratified samples [1], integrating different scaffold fabrication technologies.
