Self-assembling Peptide Scaffolds For Regenerative Medicine

John B. Matson, Samuel I. Stupp Bio-materials made from small peptide chains are ideal for creating scaffolds for tissue regeneration. Small peptides can assemble into spheres, cylinders, tubes, and many other useful scaffolding structures. Classes of Filamentous Supra-molecular Scaffolds Peptide amphiphiles are short chain peptides with a hydrophobic tail attached to a lipid chain capable of self…
