|Seminar: POLYSACCHARIDE HYDROGELS FOR PROTEIN DELIVERY AND 3D-BIOPRINTING, with Professor Tina Vermonden, Utrecht University |
MS Teams online event
Introduction Hydrogels based on derivatized polysaccharides have high potential for local delivery of protein therapeutics and use in tissue engineering. Hyaluronic acid is a highly negatively charged polysaccharide abundantly present in the vitreous of the eye. Hydrogels based on hyaluronic acid can be prepared by derivatization with functional groups that react to form a crosslinked 3D-polymer network. The crosslinking strategy can be based on covalent bond formation or dynamic reversible...
