NBD Seminar Series: Understanding & Directing Neural Tissue Regeneration Using Biomimetic Scaffolds

The extracellular matrix plays critical roles in dictating cell fate and tissue regeneration. Physical signals like matrix topography and compliance affect cellular response. Combined with biochemical signals from drugs, growth factors and nucleic acids, synergistic effects on directing cell phenotypic changes and tissue regrowth are often seen. Here, we will present our approaches towards designing bio-mimicking constructs to direct neural cell fate.
