Developing Novel 3D Printed Hydrogel-based Bioinks

The research team is developing a novel 3D printed hydrogel-based bioinks aimed at improving the understanding of and replicating the biochemical and biophysical cues required for musculoskeletal tissue function and prevention of further tissue degeneration. The research team has successfully assembled a working off-the-shelf 3D printer and converted it into a bioprinter capable of extruding

Chemical Gradient Fabrication through Electrospinning

Musculoskeletal diseases plague the lives of 50 percent of people over the age of 18, costing Americans 45 billion dollars per year. This research aims to create a novel technique through electrospinning and is based on creating a proper template for regeneration of tendon-bone injuries, one of the most common musculoskeletal issues. The nanofibers that
