Research interests

Development of droplet networks as tissue mimics


Dr. Restrepo-Schild has worked at the interfaces between biology, chemistry, and physics for a decade. Her work is centred on membranes and membrane proteins, especially proton pumps and ion channels. She seeks to contribute to fundamental science, and develop a new generation of biomedical implants. Highlights of Dr. Restrepo-Schild's work include the development of synthetic tissues with soft bio-electronic capabilities. The bridging of synthetic and living tissues is the current focus of her research.
