Tailoring vessel morphology in vivo
Tissue engineering is a rapidly growing field which seeks to provide alternatives to organ transplantation in order to address the increasing need for transplantable tissues. One huge hurdle in this effort is the provision ...
Regulated release of a novel non-viral gene delivery vector from electrospun coaxial fiber mesh scaffolds
The development of novel strategies for tissue engineering entails the evolution of biopolymers into multifunctional constructs that can support the proliferation of cells and stimulate their differentiation into functional ...
Functionalization of carbon nanomaterials for biomedical and nanocomposite applications
New derivatives of carbon nanostructures: nanotubes, nano-onions and nanocrystalline diamonds were obtained through fluorination and subsequent functionalization with sucrose. Chemically modified nanocarbons show high ...
Harnessing cell response to substrate rigidity for tissue engineering applications using novel substrates with patterned elasticity
Cell response to substrate rigidity is an emerging field with implications in processes ranging from embryological development to the pathogenesis of disease states such as cancer or fibrosis, in which changes in tissue ...
