How nanotechnology can advance regenerative medicine

Posted in Science on 6th Nov, 2013 02:16 AM by AlexMuller

Nanotechnology may provide new strategies for regenerative medicine, including better tools to improve or restore damaged tissues, according to a review paper that summarizes the current state of knowledge on nanotechnology with application to stem cell biology.

Researchers have found that the adhesion, growth, and differentiation of stem cells are likely controlled by their surrounding microenvironment, which contains both chemical and physical cues. These cues include the “nanotopography” of the complex extracellular matrix or architecture that forms a network for human tissues.
In their review paper published in the journal Science and Technology of Advanced Materials (open access), Yang-Kao Wang and colleagues describe studies showing how this nanotopography (which includes nanosized pores, grooves, ridges, etc.) plays important roles in the behavior and fate of stem cells.
The authors also discuss the application of nanoparticles to stem cell isolation, tracking and imaging; how to translate nanotechnology from two to three dimensions; and the potential limitations of using nanomaterials in stem cell biology.

Can I make a suggestion? I beleive youve obtained something great here. But what need to you added a pair links to a page that backs up what youre saying? Or possibly you can give us one thing to look at, one thing that may connect what youre saying to 1 thing tangible? Only a suggestion. Anyway, in my language, there arene2€™t much great source like this. Reply
