We have developed a biomineralization platform that uses the ordered and disordered sections of a protein to create an organic framework capable of recruiting calcium and phosphate ions, nucleating nanocrystals, and guiding their growth hierarchically into functional materials (www.nature.com/articles/s41467-018-04319-0). The platform has potential to generate treatments for enamel repair and regeneration.

Our approach introduces a novel bioink inkjet printing process whereby peptides are used to organise multiple proteins and biomolecules into ordered structures with nano-to-micro-scale control. In collaboration with Dr Rafael Castrejón-Pita of Queen Mary University of London. Watch with headphones. Watch on Youtube here: –youtube.com/watch?v=kwf-DS0Wd5Y
