Custom Tailored Fibrous Scaffold Prototype for Tissue Cells Culture via Combined Electrospinning

“CES – project”

This project focuses on the development of electrospun cells scaffolds for tissue engineering, thus contributes in the problem of donors scarcity in traditional organ transplant surgery. Scaffolds should mimic the native cells surrounding, support cells adhesion, cells penetration and homogenous colonization. The technique of electrospinning is advantageous due to versatility in materials selection, fibers diameter and morphology control and complex compositions fabrication with the addition of nanomaterials to the polymer solutions or melts. The project offers solution to fabrication of electrospun scaffolds with dual structure overcoming the drawback of scaffolds intrinsic 2D structure. The final goal of the project is to develop scaffolds with optimal architecture and multifunctionality, thus introducing co-existence of several functional spieces…
