Controlling Self-Assembling Peptide Hydrogel Properties through Network Topology.


Self-assembling peptide-based hydrogels have encountered increasing interest in the recent years as scaffolds for 3D cell culture or for controlled drug delivery. One of the main challenges is the fine control of the mechanical properties of these materials. The bulk properties of hydrogels not only depend on the intrinsic properties of the fibers but also… (More)
