Tissue engineering for the nervous system

Abstract:

Tissue engineering for the brain emerged as a promising therapy for traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) after the discovery of neural stem cells (NSCs) in the subventricular zone (SVZ) and the subgranular zone (SGZ). Combining NSCs with novel bioactive scaffolds may encourage and direct tissue regeneration and ultimately repair tissue damaged due to injuries.

In this thesis, a number of collagen-based scaffolds were fabricated into an interlaced network structure. The scaffolds com...
