Development of Chitosan Coatings by Plasma-Grafting for Prevention of Contamination for Medical Devices comments

by Juliana M. Vaz
Bacterial contamination is a public health and socio-economic problem. In Canada, 220,000 people will develop nosocomial infections each year, 8,000 will die and 106...

High-throughput synthesis, analysis, and optimization of injectable hydrogels for drug delivery comments

by Todd Hoare Fei XU
Hydrogels are three-dimensional crosslinked polymer networks that have been widely explored in drug delivery given that their tunable internal porosities allow drugs to be loaded and subsequently released with user-defined kinetics...
