Cell-based Tissue Regeneration using Elastin-mimetic Extracellular Matrix Protein
Funding Source: The Ministry of Education, Science and Technology of the Republic of Korea
The major goal of this project is to investigate the potential of elastin-mimetic extracellular matrix protein as a novel biomaterial for stem cell-based musculoskeletal regeneration.
Induced Pluripotent Stem Cells Differentiated in Engineered Matrix with a Bio-inspired Surface for Tendon Regeneration
Funding Source: UW Institute for Clinical and Translational Research and UW Stem Cell and Regenerative Medicine Center
The major goal of this project is to investigate tendon regeneration from the stem cells induced and cultured in braided nanofibrous scaffolds.
