Negar Mansouri – Feasibility of 3D graphene-based scaffold for tissue engineering applications
October 5, 2018 @ 3:35 pm - 4:00 pm
ABSTRACT Numerous efforts have been made in tissue engineering and regenerative medicine fields in order to produce functional replacements which restore malfunction tissues or organs. Graphene derivatives are considered as a promising candidate which provide a biocompatible, conductive and porous structure for satisfactory tissue regeneration. This study reports the fabrication of 3D composite graphene-based scaffold by a simple and eco-friendly method. The physical, chemical and electrical characteristics of obtained scaffolds have been examined. Subsequently, the characterization techniques approves the capacity of porous graphene/alginate composite for the construction of electrically conductive scaffolds for tissue engineering applications.
Speaker Negar Mansouri received her B.Eng in Electronics Engineering and MA.Eng in biomedical Engineering in 2014 and 2016, respectively. She started her PhD journey in the School of EEE in 2017. Her current research involves designing scaffolds for electrical stimulation of neural tissue engineering.
