Confidential– Lead Researcher Sept. 2010 – June 2011
Physical and chemical properties of biodegradable polymer electrospun nanofiber scaffolds were studied to determine the likelihood that cardiac cells could migrate and differentiate into cardiac tissue and survive in the human body in hopes of repairing dead cardiac tissue of patients that have suffered from a myocardial infarction. Identified new and unique combinations of polymers that could be electrospun into nanofiber scaffolds that would allow cells to migrate and differentiate into tissue.
