Biomaterials for Brain Tissue Engineering

Pettikiriarachchi, Jerani T.S.; Parish, Clare L.; Shoichet, M.S.; Forsythe, John S.; Nisbet, David

Description

Neurological disorders such as traumatic brain injuries or stroke result in neuronal loss and disruption of the brain parenchyma. Current treatment strategies are limited in that they can only mitigate the degeneration process or alleviate the symptoms but do not reverse the condition. In contrast, regenerative cell-based therapies offer long-term hope for many patients. Bioactive scaffolds are likely to reinforce the success of cell replacement therapies by providing a microenvironment that...[Show more]
