Patterning and release of signaling proteins

Check out Joe's new paper on how to repeatably and reversibly pattern signaling proteins in hydrogels

July 26, 2018

Protein-functionalized hydrogels can provide more accurate extracellular matrix mimics for controlling cell behavior. In this work Joe et. al. describe fully reversible and repeatable patterning and release of signaling proteins from thiol-ene hydrogels.
