  1. 1. Engineering Vascularized Skin Tissue in a 3D format supported by Recombinant Spider Silk

    University essay from KTH/Proteinteknologi

    Author : Savvini Gkouma; [2020]
    Keywords : skin; BSE; bilayered skin tissue equivalent; 3D; in vitro; model; vascularized; recombinant spider silk; FN-4RepCT; dermis; epidermis;

    Abstract : Skin is an organ with a complex structure which plays a crucial role in thebody’s defence against external threats and in maintaining major homeostatic functions. The need for in vitro models that mimic the in vivo milieu is therefore high and relevant with various applications including, among others, penetration, absorption, and toxicity studies. READ MORE
