Nanofiber and stem cell enabled biomimetic systems and regenerative medicine

Academic Article

Abstract

  • Nanostructured biopolymers exhibiting nanofibrous morphology have gained much interest in regenerative medicine and in vitro biomimetic systems due, primarily, to the close approximation of this nanofibrous morphology to nanofeatures found in natural extracellular matrices (ECM). This review focuses on recent developments in stem cell based tissue regeneration and biomimetic systems utilizing nanoscaffolds from bioresrobable polymers, proteins and blends fabricated with electrospinning, an enabling nanotechnology for nanofiber scaffolds using embryonic stem cells; induced pluripotent stem cells and mesenchymal stem cells.
