Bio-inspired morphogens and biomimetic biomaterials for regenerative medicine

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

The use of bio-inspired morphogens integrated into biomimetic biomaterials in regenerative medicine was studied. Morphogens were morphogenetic protein signals that acted on responding stem cells. The principles of morphogenesis were applied to tissue engineering for regenerative medicine and surgery. The biomimetic materials were found to mimic extracellular matrix scaffolding by presenting the cellular binding sites found within collagens, fibronectin, proteoglycans and glycoproteins which were useful in regenerative medicines.
