Stretching the possibilities: development of a resilin-based hydrogel for tissue engineering.

By LifETIME CDT Student: Cameron McAnespie (University of Glasgow) Biomaterials have been extensively employed in drug discovery and regenerative medicine to better mimic the three-dimensional nature of the extracellular matrix (ECM). Hydrogels are an optimal choice because they form a mesh-like structure that biomolecules can be trapped in, creating an environment favourable to cell growth (shown
