The Natural Scaffolds Review helps you learn about the latest natural polymer research in an understandable way that doesn't insult your intelligence. Discussing the latest published and peer-reviewed research on naturally occurring polymers being used in tissue engineering and regenerative medicine. I'll interview an author from a published article so we can get their insight on the significance of the research, and talk about the challenges still to face.
||CleanCryogels with Sandeep Koshy||Cryogels are created by allowing the aqueous solvent itself to be a porogen. Polymers are dissolved in an aqueous solvent and the solution is frozen overnight. The ice crystals become porogens. To create the macroporous hydrogel, let the water melt.||3/30/2014||Free||View in iTunes|
||CleanDecellularized Organs with Giuseppe Orlando||Most tissue engineering and regenerative medicine scaffolds mimic extracellular matrix. Decellularized organs use the ECM itself. Dr. Giuseppe Orlando and his team have decellularized human kidneys as a possible solution for kidney transplants.||2/28/2014||Free||View in iTunes|
