Biomimetic PEG Hydrogels for ex vivo Hematopoietic Stem Cell Expansion
Hematopoietic stem cells (HSCs) are commonly used in the treatment of blood cancers, like leukemia, and other cancers where radiation or chemotherapy damages the native HSC population. The development of a novel system to ...
Development of a Thermoresponsive and Chemically Crosslinkable Hydrogel System for Craniofacial Bone Tissue Engineering
A novel injectable hydrogel system for cell delivery in craniofacial bone tissue engineering was developed in this work. The hydrogel employs a dual solidification mechanism by containing units that gel upon temperature ...
Bioactive Poly(ethylene glycol)-based Hydrogels for Angiogenesis in Tissue Engineering
Because engineered tissue constructs are inherently limited by their lack of microvascularization, which is essential to provide oxygen for cell survival, this thesis presents rationally designed materials and cell culture ...
