A major goal of bone tissue engineering is to design better scaffold configuration and materials to better control osteoblast behavior. Nanoporous architecture has been shown to significantly affect cellular response. In this work, nanoporous alumina membranes were fabricated by a two-step anodization method to investigate bone cell response. Osteoblasts(More)
The development and optimization of many new drug therapies requires long-term local delivery with controlled, but variable dosage. Current methods for chronic drug delivery have limited utility because they either cannot deliver drugs locally to a specific organ or tissue, do not permit changes in delivery rate in situ, or cannot be used in clinical trials(More)
Immobilization of peptides on surfaces is a common method to investigate biological response to biomaterials for the development of improved tissue engineering constructs. Peptide immobilization can be achieved by either physical adsorption or covalent attachment on the surface. In this work, the RGDC peptide was covalently immobilized to alumina substrate(More)
