Abstract: Patterned silk protein films possess desirable characteristics for corneal tissue engineering, including optical transparency, biocompatibility, and tunable mechanical properties, but current fabrication protocols do not provide adequate degradation rates to match the regeneration properties of the human cornea. In this study, the beta-sheet (crystalline) content of silk films was decrea... read more
