(2015-07-01)Techniques that enable the creation of instructive biomaterials have the potential to advance our understanding and ability to guide cell fate and function. Benzophenone (BP) photolithography is uniquely suited to generating ...
Development, characterization and applications of a direct, general method to photochemically generate patterns and gradients on planar glass substrates, corrugated substrates and in highly porous collagen-GAG scaffolds (2011-05-25)Recent surface chemical approaches to physically modeling the extra-cellular matrix (ECM) have provided invaluable insight into the molecular nature of cell adhesion and have clearly established the contributions of altered ...
(2011-01-21)Atomic force microscope (AFM) has emerged as a powerful tool in the last two decades to study biological materials at the nanoscale. The high resolution imaging capability and high precision force sensitivity of AFM makes ...
Synthesis and application of biomaterials containing the 1,3,5-triazaadamantane moiety or functionalized alginate (2010-01-06)This thesis describes the synthesis and study of novel biomaterials. This work can be broadly divided into two groups of projects based on the compounds and materials that were used. The first group involves a class of ...
