Immunomodulatory hydrogel microspheres as a sustained release system for angiogenic growth factors comments

by Eric Tawagi
Revascularization approaches that involve delivering growth factors with short half-lives minutes over periods of weeks in order to regenerate micro vessels have been identified as promising strategies to address disorders related to compromised tissue perfusion...

Fiber formation in genipin crosslinked elastin-based materials: a balance of coacervation, crosslinking comments

by Kirklann Lau
Elastin is the extracellular protein primarily responsible for elasticity in animal tissues. Elastin self-assembles from its protein building block unit, tropoelastin, via a liquid-liquid phase separation process known as coacervation...
