Differential human mesenchymal stem cell responses across multi-compartment scaffolds for tendon-bone regeneration (2014-05-30)The TBJ is a unique anatomical zone which transmits high tensile loads from aligned, fibrous tendon to stiff bone. Injuries to the rotator cuff account for 4.5 million physician visits per year and an annual 250,000 surgeries ...
(2014-05-30)This thesis explores the effects of mechanical stimuli on cell patterning and behavior, which may influence our understanding of in vivo processes such as morphogenesis, wound healing, disease progression, tumor formation, ...
(2012-05-22)Tissue engineering aims to regenerate lost or damaged tissues and frequently combines therapeutic cells, biomaterial scaffolds, and therapeutic molecules in efforts to do so. One of the primary considerations in such ...
Flexible adaptation of iterative learning control with applications to synthetic bone graft manufacturing (2012-02-06)Additive manufacturing processes are powerful tools; they are capable of fabricating structures without expensive structure specific tooling -- therefore structure designs can efficiently change from run-to-run -- and they ...
(2015-04)Cancer is an immensely complicated problem in both engineering and medicine. It is an unfortunate fact that all of us will be affected by cancer, either directly or indirectly. As a bioengineer, my passion therefore my ...
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 ...
