spinal cord injury
Spinal Cord Injury
  • 200,000 people in the US suffer from paralysis due to spinal cord injury.
  • More than half of spinal cord injuries are sustained by people between the ages of 15 and 29.
  • 60% of spinal cord injuries are cervical injuries.

mechanical properties
Mechanical Properties
  • The difference in compressive modulus of the gels could contribute to the difference in differentiation within the gels
  • HA mediates compressive modulus
chemical cues for differentiation
Chemical Cues for Differentiation
  • Cannot decouple mechanical and chemical cues
  • Create methacrylated HA gels to control mechanical properties
  • Control concentrations of collagen and laminin within same mechanical property gels
