Growth Factor Patterning

Main content

In nature, cells are residing in a complex environment composed of different cells, soluble growth factors and extracellular matrix. The interplay of these factors is influencing the cellular behavior. In order to study the effect growth factors on cells, this project is developing a bioprinting-based approach to study the influence of growth factor combinations and concentrations on stem cell chondrogenesis in a clinically-relevant collagen scaffold.
