A Novel Human Adipocyte-Derived Basement Membrane for Tissue Engineering Applications
Tissue engineering strategies have traditionally focused on the use of synthetic polymers as support scaffolds for cell growth. Recently, strategies have shifted towards a natural biologically derived scaffold, with the ...
Engineering Escherichia coli for the production of polyketide-based platform chemicals
The current chemical industry produces a diverse array of industrial chemicals from a handful of highly reduced byproducts (termed "platform chemicals") derived from oil refining. However, petroleum is a non-renewable ...
Thermodynamics of confined colloid-polymer mixtures
Recent advances have elucidated the behavior of colloids and polymer systems in the archety pal three dimensions. However, these systems are ill-understood when confined to two dimensions. Using experimental techniques ...
