OBJECTIVE Collagen-based scaffolds for guided bone regeneration (GBR) are continuously improved to overcome the mechanical weaknesses of collagen. We have previously demonstrated superior mechanical characteristics of the elastin-like polypeptide (ELP) reinforced collagen composites. The objectives of this research were to evaluate the efficacy of(More)
3D culture systems have the ability to mimic the natural microenvironment by allowing better cell-cell interactions. We have prepared an in vitro 3D osteogenic cell culture model using human adipose derived stem cells (hASCs) cultured atop recombinant elastin-like polypeptide (ELP) conjugated to a charged polyelectrolyte, polyethyleneimine (PEI). We(More)
