Incorporation of recombinant fibronectin into genetically engineered elastin-based polymers
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2009-11-17)
Cardiovascular disease is the main cause of death in the United States. Many of these conditions require the grafting or bypassing of compromised blood vessels. To this effect, biological vascular grafts (autografts and ...
Incorporation of protease-sensitive biomaterial degradation and tensile strain for applications in ligament-bone interface tissue engineering
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2011-11-02)
The interface between tendon/ligament and bone tissue is a complex transition of biochemical, cellular, and mechanical properties. Investigating computational and tissue engineering models that imitate aspects of this ...
