A Model of Lung Tumor Angiogenesis in a Biomimetic Poly(ethylene glycol)-based Hydrogel System
Tumor angiogenesis is critical to tumor growth and metastasis, yet much is unknown about the role vascular cells play in the tumor microenvironment. A major outstanding challenge associated with studying tumor angiogenesis ...
Bioengineered Approaches to Prevent Hypertrophic Scar Contraction
Burn injuries in the United States account for over one million hospital admissions per year, with treatment estimated at four billion dollars. Of severe burn patients, 30-90% will develop hypertrophic scars (HSc). Current ...
Enzymatic Polymerization of High Molecular Weight DNA
The use of DNA as a polymeric building material transcends its function in biology and is exciting in bionanotechnology for applications ranging from biosensing, to diagnostics, and to targeted drug delivery. These applications ...
Acoustic and Magnetic Techniques for the Isolation and Analysis of Cells in Microfluidic Platforms
Cancer comprises a collection of diseases, all of which begin with abnormal tissue growth from various stimuli, including (but not limited to): heredity, genetic mutation, exposure to harmful substances, radiation as well ...
Active Surface Deformation Technology for Management of Marine Biofouling
Biofouling, the accumulation of biomolecules, cells, organisms and their deposits on submerged and implanted surfaces, is a ubiquitous problem across various human endeavors including maritime operations, medicine, food ...
