Project: Aligned plasma bio-activated nanostructured conduits for peripheral nerve regeneration.
01/10/14 – 31/07/19
The objective of this project is the fabrication and evaluation of nanofibrous conduits for peripheral nerve regeneration. Bioactivation of the conduits will be performed by plasma treatment. After in vitro evaluation of structural, mechanical and cell interactive properties, selected conduits will be evaluated in vivo, using a rat model with cricical size defects in the sciatic nerve.
