Regenerative Medicine

Abstract: Cellular systems respond to many cues from their microenvironment, which may include

chemical signals, mechanical signals, and topography. Importantly, these cues may be incorporated into

scaffolding to control cell responses and optimize their ability to produce tissues in regenerative medicine

Professional Degree Program
