Valvular heart diseases are the third leading cause of cardiovascular disease, resulting in more than 25,000 deaths annually in the United States. Heart valve tissue engineering (HVTE) has emerged as a putative treatment strategy such that the designed construct would ideally withstand native dynamic mechanical environment, guide regeneration of the(More)
Myoblast differentiation is a key step in myogenesis and has long been considered to be controlled mainly by biochemical cues such as growth factors. However, the tissue engineering approaches based on biochemical cues demonstrate low reproducibility as a precise spatial control over their bioactivity is challenging. Recently, substrate micro/nano-structure(More)
Cerium oxide nanoparticles (CNPs) represent a promising class of antioxidant nanoparticles with potential therapeutic value. Due to the easily reversible oxidation states of cerium (Ce3+ and Ce4+) at the nanoscale, CNPs scavenge excessive reactive oxygen and nitrogen species in a self-regenerative manner. In this study, we have demonstrated a simple method(More)
