The three-dimensional (3D) extracellular matrix (ECM) environment plays a critical role in mediating normal cellular behavior and tissue organization. While commercially available microcarriers have shown promise, limited research has been conducted on the design of tissue-specific, custom-fabricated microcarriers, engineered to mimic the composition of the native ECM of cells or tissues of interest. Moving toward this goal, methods were developed to fabricate microcarriers from decellularized… CONTINUE READING
