Surface guidance of stem cell behavior: chemically tailored co-presentation of integrin-binding peptides stimulates osteogenic differentiation in vitro and bone formation in vivo
(Acta Biomaterialia, 2016-10-01)
Surface modification stands out as a versatile technique to create instructive biomaterials that are able to actively direct stem cell fate. Chemical functionalization of titanium has been used in this ...
Biological roles and delivery strategies for ions to promote osteogenic induction
(Frontiers in Cell and Developmental Biology, 2021-01-14)
Bone is the most studied tissue in the field of tissue regeneration. Even though it has intrinsic capability to regenerate upon injury, several pathologies and injuries could hamper the highly orchestrated ...
Antibacterial approaches in tissue engineering using metal ions and nanoparticles: from mechanisms to applications
(Bioactive Materials, 2021-12)
Bacterial infection of implanted scaffolds may have fatal consequences and, in combination with the emergence of multidrug bacterial resistance, the development of advanced antibacterial biomaterials ...
