3D-printed chitosan scaffolds for the improved in-vivo wound healing in diabetic rats

In the tissue engineering context, fabrication of porous three dimensional (3D) printed chitosan (CH) scaffolds for skin tissue regeneration and their behavior in terms of biocompatibility, cytocompatibility and toxicity toward human fibroblast (Nhdf) and keratinocyte (HaCaT), was

Domain strain-engineering for epitaxial ferroelectric thin films by sputtering

The integration of multiferroic materials in the new generation of nanostructured electronic devices requires precise and orderly control of the thin films growth, taking into account the nature of such materials to develop domain structures, that is,

Nanoscale engineering of heterostructured anode materials for boosting lithium ion storage

Rechargeable lithium ion batteries (LIBs), as one of the most important electrochemical energy storage devices, currently provide the dominant power source for a range of devices including portable electronic devices and electric vehicles due to their high

Towards organs on demand: a new platform for successful kidney organogenesis

The ultimate treatment for end-stage renal disease is orthotopic transplantation. However, the demand for kidney transplantation far exceeds the number of available donor organs. While more than 100,000 Americans need a kidney, only 17,000 people receive a

Improvement of critically sized bone fracture healing by using conductive tissue engineering scaffolds

Bone is the second most prevalent transplant tissue after blood. Healing the critically sized bone defects caused by tumor or trauma are among the major challenges for orthopedic surgeons. Although, allografts and autografts are commonly used for

Tricking the body into building new heart valves and blood vessels

When heart valves or small blood vessels fail, surgically implanting a replacement can be a life-saving operation. Right now, replacement blood vessels are harvested from the patient’s leg or chest, which is an additional invasive procedure. Heart
