Matching tissue engineering scaffold modulus to that of native tissue is highly desirable. Effective scaffold modulus can be altered through changes in base material modulus and/or scaffold pore architecture. Because the latter may be restricted by tissue in-growth requirements, it is advantageous to be able to alter the base material modulus of a chosen… CONTINUE READING
