Sammanfattning : Hyaline cartilage is a highly specialized tissue, which plays an important role in the articulating joints of an individual. It provides the joints with a nearly frictionless, impact resisting surface to protect the ends of the articulating bones. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : This thesis presents the preparation of hyaluronan-based biomaterials with imaging capability and their application as scaffolds in tissue engineering. First, we have synthesized HA derivatives functionalized with different chemoselective groups. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : The growing field of biotechnology is in constant need of proteins that can function as recognition tools for separational, analytical and therapeutic purposes. Different molecular engineering approaches are applied on natural proteins in order to create variants with desired properties. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : This thesis explores the integration of electrospun polymeric structures in two fields; fibrous scaffolds as cell culture substrates for biomedical applications and fiber carrier networks in metal matrix polymer composites as thermal interface materials in microsystems. Electrospinning has been found to carry great potential for a range of future biomedical engineering applications. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : This work has focused on the development of new improved synthesis methods of biodegradable aliphatic polymers and on the preparation of porous scaffolds for tissue engineering applications. The aim of the first part of the work was the synthesis of poly(p-dioxanone) (PPDX) homopolymers with high molecular weights using the cyclic tin alkoxide initiator 1-di-n-butyl-1-stanna-2,5-dioxacyclopentane.
