Honey as a tool for tissue engineering

Honey has a long and fascinating history. In fact, since Biblical times and before, honey has been utilized by humankind for its beneficial health effects. The ancient Egyptians, Assyrians, Chinese, Greeks and Romans utilized honey in the

Bioartificial liver constructs

The liver with high regenerative capability performs a complex array of synthetic, metabolic, immunologic and detoxification functions to regulate the physiological homeostasis of the human body. Viral infections, drug induced liver injury, hepatocellular carcinoma, autoimmune disorders, alcoholic

Silk patches to repair hearts

The heart is a very sensitive organ. Once it’s “broken”, it doesn’t quite function the same way again. Biologically speaking, a common way of getting your heart broken is when you suffer a heart attack. When the

Enhancing human abilities with the power of Neuroregeneration & Tissue Engineering

Human peripheral nerves (PNs) act as cables that connect the spinal cord (point A) to the muscles and the peripheral organs of the body (point B). They transmit information back and forth, from the spinal cord to

Light-controlled muscle-powered walking biological robots

For centuries, engineers have built with traditional materials, such as woods or metals, which can’t dynamically respond to changes in their environment. Intuitively, we know that biological materials can do things synthetic materials cannot. For example, our

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
