A microRNA-responsive drug release system will strengthen the selectiveness of the photodynamic therapy system.
The BioTexValve demonstrates the potential of bio-inspired textile-reinforcement for the fabrication of functional tissue-engineered heart valves for the aortic position.
This new tissue engineering approach may be useful to establish a technology for regenerative medicine and drug discovery using the patient’s own neurons.
Researchers describe a novel “body-on-a-chip” device that consists of 14 interconnected compartments, each representing a different organ of the human body.
A prototype theranostic device based on thermally triggered release of a fluorescent antibiotic from polymer coated porous silicon films is developed.
Researchers develop conducting graphene–PLGA fiber electrode that promotes muscle cell growth, and that could stimulate muscle regeneration.
easySTORM: a robust, lower-cost approach to localization and TIRF microscopy A broad range of new microscopy methodologies have recently been introduced collectively referred to as “super-resolved microscopy (SRM)”. They offer resolution measured in tens of nanometers or less – overcoming the diffraction limit and thereby opening up a wealth of new possibilities for biological studies. […]
To avoid an undesired protein adsorption, nanoparticles were masked with poly(2-oxazoline)s resulting in a stealth coating comparable or superior to PEG.
The state-of-the-art of flexible and stretchable devices is highlighted in this special issue of Advanced Materials.
A. Paul et al. describe the various types of bioengineered materials and matrices, which in combination with stem cells, have shown promise in supporting the revival of injured cardiac tissues.
