One-Size-Fits-All Biomaterial
Added Nov 19, 2012 | Rate View top rated
Three University of Akron polymer scientists have worked together to produce a first-of-its-kind, easily adaptable biocompatible polymer structure. Darrell Reneker, distinguished professor of polymer science; Matthew Becker, associate professor of polymer science; and Jukuan Zheng, a graduate student, developed what they call a one-size-fits-all polymer system that can be fabricated and then specialized to perform functions ranging from fighting infection and wound healing to filtering water. The researchers devised a way to attach bioactive molecules to an electrospun polymer fiber mat, without compromising their biological functions.
