A Biomaterials Approach to Kidney Engineering: The Structural and Chemical Modification of Silk Fibroin Scaffolds for in vitro Tubulogenesis

Sandler, Nathan


  • Sponges for kidney tissue engineering were created using Bombyx mori silk fibroin. Silk protein was fabricated into random and aligned porous three-dimensional sponges. The mechanical properties of the scaffolds were determined using dynamic mechanical analysis (DMA). The structural properties of the scaffolds, including the porosity, pore size distribution, water swelling, and morphology, were ... read more
