BioE Seminar - CANCELLED "Cell and Protein Therapeutics Using Polymeric Hydrogel Carriers": Bioengineering Department Seminar
Seminar | October 9 | 12-1 p.m. | 106 Stanley Hall | Canceled
Dror Seliktar, Israel Institute of Technology
Cancelled due to power outage.
Our research is focused on the design of engineered hydrogel biomaterials that can harness natural cellular and molecular healing pathways to enhance functional tissue regeneration...we developed a novel biomimetic material that can harness the inductive properties of the natural blood clot protein fibrinogen. Using synthetic polymer conjugation chemistry, we modify the fibrinogen molecule with poly(ethylene glycol) (PEG) to create a biosynthetic precursor with tunable physicochemical properties based on the molecular relationship between the two constituents.
