Prof. Sarah Heilshorn, Stanford University, Materials Science & Engineering

Berkeley Nanosciences and Nanoengineering Institute

Cell transplantation is a promising therapy for a myriad of debilitating diseases and injuries; however, current delivery protocols are inadequate. Transplantation by direct injection, which is clinically preferred for its minimal invasiveness, commonly results in less than 5% cell viability.

As a strategy to protect cells, we have designed a biodegradable, customizable hydrogel using...   More >
