摘要:A major challenge in tissue engineering is the design of scaffolds that can mimic the structure and biological functions of the natural extracellular matrix. As such, the biomaterial of choice must be biocompatible, biodegradable and allow cellular attachment, migration and proliferation. In addition the biomaterial should be organized, possess the appropriate mechanical properties and provide physical support to the cells as remodeling takes place. In this study, several of these factors have been explored using electrospun poly(vinyl alcohol) nanofibers stabilized and functionalized using ion implantation. Our results demonstrated the effect of fiber organization on cell behavior and that ion implantation is an effective method to improve fiber stability and cell compatibility which are important factors for a successful tissue engineering process.

报告人简介:

  Dr. Wankei Wan is a Professor in the Department of Chemical and Biochemical Engineering at The University of Western Ontario (UWO). He was also a co-founder and Director of the Graduate Program in Biomedical Engineering at UWO from 2001 2007. A graduate from the University of Hong Kong, he received his PhD degree from the State University of New York at Buffalo and joined UWO after an industrial research career with ESSO Canada in Ontario Canada and Exxon Research and Engineering Company in New Jersey USA. His current research interests include the design and development of nanobiomaterials for medical devices and regenerative medicine with focuses on the cardiovascular system, spine and wound; development of nanomaterials based controlled release and targeted delivery systems for therapeutics and tissue engineering; and microbial and microalgal processes for biomaterials and green materials synthesis and application.
