[Illinois] Cadherin-Modulated Neural Differentiation of Stem Cells for Neuromuscular Junction Engineering
29 Jan 2016 | | Contributor(s):: Ellen Qin
Recently, efforts are increasingly made to engineer NMJ in vitro for both fundamental and applied bioscience studies. Certain success was made to modulate neural differentiation of stem cells using soluble factors and cell adhesion matrix properties. However, these studies were often plagued by...
[Illinois] BioNanotechnology Seminar Series Spring 2012: Cationic, Helical Polypeptide Based Gene Delivery for IMR90 Fibroblasts and Human Embryonic Stem Cells
13 Jun 2013 | | Contributor(s):: Jonathan Yen
New diblock copolymers consisting of poly(ethyleneglycol)-block-poly(?-(4-(piperidin-1-yl)ethanaminomethylbenzyl)-L-glutamate), PEG-b-PVBLG-8 were synthesized for the effective transfection of hard to transfect cells like IMR90, human fetal lung fibroblasts and human embryonic stem cells (hESC)....
[Illinois] MechSE Bio Interest Group Seminar Series: Spatially-Patterned Collagen Scaffolds for Orthopedic Tissue Engineering and Regulating Stem Cell Fate
26 Nov 2012 | | Contributor(s):: Steven Caliari
"Regeneration of multi-tissue structures like the tendon-bone junction (TBJ) requires dynamic new biomaterial technologies. The TBJ contains gradations of protein and mineral content that serve to minimize stresses at the interface between the stiff bone and softer tendon to prevent failure....
[Illinois] GEM4 2012: Stem Cell Engineering: Challenges, Opportunities & Strategies
18 Jul 2012 | | Contributor(s):: Todd McDevitt
Our objective is to educate researchers and graduate students about the fundamentals of cell and molecular biomechanics, and to provide an intense learning experience, and to facilitate interactions among engineers, biologists and clinicians. The goals are to help train a new generation of...

Illinois BioNanotechnology Seminar Series Spring 2011: Engineering Cellular Microenvironments for Biomedicine
14 Apr 2011 | | Contributor(s):: Brendan Harley
The extracellular matrix (ECM) is a complex organization of structural proteins such as collagens and proteoglycans. Heterogeneous tissues with spatially and temporally modulated properties and their biomaterial mimics play an important role in organism physiology and regenerative medicine. With...
