Research Project

Evaluating Adipose Tissue Accumulation in Silk Fibroin Scaffolds for Biomaterial Applications

The project aims to quantify and further investigate adipose tissue growth and accumulation in scaffolds (made from silk fibroin from Bombyx mori silkworms) synthesized under different conditions in order to determine optimal biomaterial formulations for different clinical applications.
