Nanovehicles for targeted bone metastasis chemotherapy

28 Jul 2014

The cover story for the July 2014 issue of Biomaterials Science highlights the use of nanovehicle particles for the targeted delivery of chemotherapy drugs to tumor cells in bone. Bone metastasis, or the spreading of tumor cells from the initial tumor site to bone tissue, marks the stage of cancer progression where the diseased is […]

High throughput evaluation of surfaces for stem cell culture

03 Jun 2014

This study identifies new surfaces optimized for human pluripotent stem cell expansion using a high-throughput polymer microarray chip. The biomaterials community is moving toward using high-throughput tools to evaluate cell-material interactions at an unprecedented rate. For instance, polymer microarrays have become popular for identifying candidate surfaces that elicit a desired biological response. Using a single […]

Cerebellar neuron development on hybrid matrix constructs

16 Apr 2014

The cerebellum is a region in the brain responsible for regulating motor control and cognitive functions such as attention and language. During development of the cerebellum (and of other tissues), cells interact with the surrounding microenvironment known as the extracellular matrix (ECM). These neuron-ECM interactions regulate neuronal differentiation, growth, formation of synapses, and neurite outgrowth. […]
