Implementation of biomaterials to study and control complex cell behaviors
Biomedical research has led to many advancements in healthcare for the treatment, diagnosis and monitoring of many diseases. Tissue engineering is a discipline within biomedical research that combines engineering principles with biology to understand and recreate tissues and complex cellular structures. This thesis focuses on the work done to understand a variety of different diseases by monitoring the cellular responses of tissue specific cells on biomimetic materials or by tuning material properties to obtain a desired cellular response. To study glaucoma, a biomimetic scaffold was produced ...
