A new publication from our lab reveals an electrospun membrane that supports adhesion and differentiation of stem cell-derived kidney epithelial cells
This study demonstrates for the first time that electrospun silk fibroin membrane can serve as a supportive biocompatible platform for human podocyte differentiation and propagation. We anticipate that the results of this study will pave the way for the use of electrospun membranes and other biomimetic scaffolds for kidney tissue engineering, including the development of co-culture systems and organs-on-chips microphysiological devices
Congratulations to Xingrui (George) Mou and co-authors!
