Bioengineers develop highly elastic biomaterial for better wound healing

from Brigham and Women's Hospital via Phys.org

A team of bioengineers at Brigham and Women's Hospital, led by Drs. Ali Khademhosseini and Nasim Annabi of the Biomedical Engineering Division, has developed a new protein-based gel that, when exposed to light, mimics many of the properties of elastic tissue, such as skin and blood vessels. In a paper published in Advanced Functional Materials, the research team reports on the new material's key properties, many of which can be finely tuned, and on the results of using the material in preclinical models of wound healing. more
