Stanford bio-X Frontiers in Interdisciplinary Biosciences Seminar
BRENDAN HARLEY, UNIVERSITY OF ILLINOIS
Dr. Harley's group develops biomaterials that replicate the dynamic, spatially-patterned, and heterogeneous microenvironment found in the tissues and organs of our body. They use this approach to generate new insight regarding how biomaterial cues can instruct cell responses in the context of development, disease, and regeneration. In this talk, Dr. Harley will describe a collagen biomaterial under development to address barriers preventing regeneration of musculoskeletal tissues such as orthopedic insertions and craniomaxillofacial bones.
