Description of projects available to graduate students:
Musculoskeletal tissue engineering/regeneration (cartilage, ligament/tendon, nerve, and others) is being investigated using adult stem cells seeded into novel degradable, biomimetic nanofiber-based biomaterial scaffolds. The applicability of these regenerative approaches will be tested both in vitro and in vivo.
Techniques graduate student will learn:
Techniques used: stem cell isolation and culture, induction of specific mesenchymal differentiation, development of engineered tissue constructs, analysis based on histology, biochemistry, immunohistochemistry, and gene expression profiles.
