Project: Enzymatic gradients in biomaterials for tissue engineering
- project duration
- 01-OCT-11 – 30-SEP-14
- Biomaterial scaffolds for tissue engineering with gradients in physico-chemical properties will be created by mineralization/crosslinking by incorporating enzymes from natural tissues within hydrogel biomaterials. By combining enzyme , temperature and compositional gradients a wide range of control over the internal structure can be achieved. Such gradients will be realized by casting, bioplotting and electrospinning.
