Tunable Polymer Networks For Medicine And Biotechnology

This invention embodies a platform technology consisting of a polymer matrix that aids in cell transplantation for either tissue formation ex vivo or tissue regeneration in vivo, drug or chemotherapy agent delivery, and gene therapy. Ideally, these matrices can deliver mammalian cells, and/or therapeutic agents into the body and act as three-dimensional templates to support and promote tissue growth. These polymer networks are tunable in terms of their delivery, drug dosing, and mechanical and biochemical properties. The polymer networks are injectable through minimally invasive methods, and do not exhibit macroscopic fracture following injection. Terri Sale terri.sale@berkeley.edu 510-643-4219
