Tissue Engineering, Scaffolds, Stem Cells
In regenerative medicine, structures are required that support the self-healing capacities of the human body. Implant scaffolds need to promote cell proliferation and tissue regeneration. Requirements are adjustable degradation rates of the biomaterials, cross-linked pores and functional surfaces. Due to their unique properties, chitosan is a perfect candidate, which meets these requirements. Here you will find more informations about chitosan in tissue engineering, as scaffold material and for stem cell growth.
