  1. 1. Evaluation of electrospun lignin/polyvinyl alcohol/cellulose nanofiber mats

    University essay from Luleå tekniska universitet/Institutionen för teknikvetenskap och matematik

    Author : Lisa Johansson Carne; [2021]
    Keywords : Electrospinning; lignin; polyvinyl alcohol; cellulose nanofiber; wound dressing;

    Abstract : Polymeric electrospun nanofiber mats have recently emerged as a promising alternative to conventional wound dressings for non-healing wounds. Its large surface area, porosity and scalability are only a few of the promising characteristics of electrospun nanofibers. READ MORE

  2. 2. Cellulose nanocrystals functionalized cellulose acetate electrospun membranes for adsorption and separation of nanosized particles

    University essay from Luleå tekniska universitet/Materialvetenskap

  4. 4. How Topography Influences the Fate of Human Neural Progenitor Cells

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Tillämpad biokemi; Lunds universitet/Beräkningskemi

    Author : Jacob Karlström; [2020]
    Keywords : biomaterials; cell culture; electrospinning; nanofibers; 3d; neural progenitor cells; in vitro models; nanotopography; blebbistatin; mechanotransduction; nucleus analysis; immunocytochemistry; differentiation; applied biochemistry; tillämpad biokemi; Biology and Life Sciences; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : Novel biomimetic three-dimensional scaffolds have emerged over the last decades, and are promising for applications in regenerative therapies, as well as in in vitro disease modelling and drug testing. Thanks to their added dimension, these scaffolds are able to more accurately mimic the topography of native cellular microenvironments compared to traditionally used two-dimensional culture substrates.

  5. 5. Effects of Different Laminins on Human Neural Progenitor Cells Cultured in 3D Electrospun Fibers

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Tillämpad biokemi; Lunds universitet/Beräkningskemi

    Author : Karl Vesterlund; [2019]
    Keywords : two-dimensional; three-dimensional; Alamar Blue; cell culture; drug development; extra-cellular matrix; electrospinning; immunocytochemistry; laminin; polycaprolactone; polymerase chain reaction; western blot; applied biochemistry; tillämpad biokemi; Technology and Engineering; Biology and Life Sciences;

    Abstract : A low success rate of drug candidates in clinical trials, and especially in brain research, motivates development of better screening models. Hence, in neuroscience and many other fields of Life Science, development of more physiological relevant experimental cell-based models is motivated. READ MORE
