One of the persistent challenges confronting tissue engineering is the lack of intrinsic microvessels for the transportation of nutrients and metabolites. An artificial microvascular system could be a feasible solution to this problem. In this study, the femtosecond laser ablation technique was implemented for the fabrication of pillared microvessel(More)
Skin serves as a protective barrier, modulating body temperature and waste discharge. It is therefore desirable to be able to repair any damage that occurs to the skin as soon as possible. In this study, we demonstrate a relatively easy and cost-effective method for the fabrication of nanostructured scaffolds, to shorten the time taken for a wound to heal.(More)
Nerve repair in tissue engineering involves the precise construction of a scaffold to guide nerve cell regeneration in the desired direction. However, improvements are needed to facilitate the cell migration/growth rate of nerves in the center of a nerve conduit. In this paper, we propose a nerve guidance conduit with a hybrid structure comprising a(More)
UNLABELLED This study developed a TiO2/PLGA [poly(lactic-co-glycolic acid)] composite biomaterial, which possesses antibacterial properties but is biocompatible, for artificial dressing applications. A sol-gel method was used for the preparation of the nano TiO2 powder with anatase phase. Several concentration ratios of TiO2 versus PLGA were analyzed to(More)
