Development of biodegradable scaffolds for tissue engineering: a perspective on emerging technology

Abstract:

The scaffold, a three-dimensional (3D) substrate that serves as a template for tissue regeneration, plays an essential role in tissue engineering, The ideal scaffold should have surface chemistry and microstructure tailored to facilitate cellular attachment, proliferation and differentiation; adequate mechanical strength for handling; and an appropriate biodégradation rate without undesirable byproducts. Research on biopolymer formulation and scaffold fabrication has been intense over the pas...
