A recent paper from collaborators in the Anseth and Cha research groups was awarded the front cover of Advanced Materials Volume 26 Issue 6.

The paper from authors Daniel McKinnon, Dylan Domaille, Jennifer Cha and Kristi Anseth is titled “Biophysically Defined and Cytocompatible Covalently Adaptable Networks as Viscoelastic 3D Cell Culture Systems."

It describes the synthesis and application of a step-growth PEG hydrogel crosslinked by hydrazone bonds that relaxes in response to cell-applied stress.
