Abstract: Considerable effort has been directed toward the use of silk fibroin as a biotechnological material in biomedical applications on account of its excellent biodegradability, biocompatibility, and unique mechanical properties. For use in tissue engineering, it is very important to design and control the pore architecture of polymeric scaffolds, which provide the vital framework for seeded cells to organize into functioning tissue. In the present study, a silk fibroin scaffold with controlled interconn…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
