Injectable Hydrogels in Tissue Repair
and Biofabrication

Hydrogels represent a class of biomaterials that have great promise for the repair of tissues, particularly due to our ability to engineer their biophysical and biochemical properties. Hydrogels can provide instructive signals through material properties alone (e.g., mechanics, degradation, structure) or through the delivery of therapeutics that can influence tissue morphogenesis and repair. Importantly, hydrogel design should reflect both the clinical context and the natural healing cascades of the damaged tissue. more
