A Tissue-Engineered Microvascular System to Evaluate Vascular Progenitor Cells for Angiogenic Therapies
The ability of tissue engineered constructs to replace diseased or damaged organs is limited without the incorporation of a functional vascular system. To design microvasculature that recapitulates the vascular niche functions ...
Cellular and Biomaterial Engineering for Orthopaedic Regenerative Medicine
The ends of long bones that articulate with respect to one another are lined with a crucial connective tissue called articular cartilage. This tissue plays an essential biomechanical function in synovial joints, as it serves ...
Biomimetic Poly(ethylene glycol)-based Hydrogels as a 3D Tumor Model for Evaluation of Tumor Stromal Cell and Matrix Influences on Tissue Vascularization
To this day, cancer remains the leading cause of mortality worldwide1. A major contributor to cancer progression and metastasis is tumor angiogenesis. The formation of blood vessels around a tumor is facilitated by the complex ...
