  • Publication number: 20200054875
    Abstract: Tissue-engineered nerve scaffolds, articles for up-selecting desired cell proliferation and down-selecting undesired cell proliferation, and methods of manufacturing the same are provided. The tissue-engineered nerve scaffold includes a hydrogel having a surface. The surface has a topography including a micropattern defined by a plurality of spaced features attached to or projected into the hydrogel. The micropattern facilitates attachment and alignment of neural cells and reduces attachment and alignment of cells associated with scar-tissue formation and encapsulation.

  • Publication number: 20190161627
    Abstract: Directed bioadhesion coatings, methods of forming directed bioadhesion coatings, and methods of directing bioadhesion are provided. In particular, methods of forming directed bioadhesion coatings include providing a substrate having a graft monomer layer on a surface thereof, selectively removing discrete portions of the graft monomer layer to expose the substrate surface, polymerizing any remaining portions of the graft monomer layer via reversible addition-fragmentation chain-transfer (RAFT) polymerization with a RAFT chain transfer agent to form a plurality of graft polymers, and simultaneously with polymerizing the remaining graft monomer layer, grafting the plurality of graft polymers to the substrate to form a chemical pattern on the substrate.

  • Publication number: 20180338765
    Abstract: Tissue-engineered electronic peripheral nerve interface (TEENI) devices, methods of using TEENI devices, and systems using TEENI devices are provided. In particular, TEENI devices include a support member having a length, at least one thread set comprising a plurality thread set arms having a plurality of electronic leads running through the thread set arms and being fully encapsulated within the support member, and a plurality of electrodes fixed to the plurality of thread set arms.
