📅Save the date: GOLD final insights📅

On October 14th 2022 between 3 pm and 3:30 pm the seed fund project GOLD will share its key insights from 12 months of work on the so-called "goldbeater's skin" (Goldschlägerhaut in German).

GOLD's goal is to analyse the goldbeater's skin mechanically, structurally, and genetically down to the molecular level. The mechanical analysis will prove its material properties applied to use-cases in stretchable, elastic textiles. RNA sequencing of collagen-producing mesothelial cells from cow serosa will elucidate the biosynthesis of such a versatile tissue. Furthermore, GOLD is currently creating a physical prototype wearable based on native tissue.
