My project focuses on the design and characterization of a tissue engineering scaffold composed of artificial proteins. Specifically I have looked into how varying the content of the protein polymers can be used to control scaffold properties such as degradability, mechanical strength, and cell adhesivity. These scaffolds are being designed for use in studying spinal cord nerve regeneration strategies.
