Developing empirical models for tissue engineered scaffold properties will help target desired features that can match native tissue and promote healing.
Creating an empirical model that predicts the mechanical properties of fibrous scaffolds will allow for scaffolds that can mimic the mechanical properties of surrounding native tissue.
Understanding the properties of 3D biomaterials can lead to new methods of repairing torn ligaments.
Producing microspheres that have stem cells, peptides and biomolecules tethered to the surface will aid in generating new tissue for bone.
Studying the mechanical properties of electro spun scaffolds will help educate people on biomedical applications of electrospinning.
Creating an improved resolution of the rotator cuff tendon-bone junction will help develop improved injury recovery techniques.
