Nanostructured conducting polymer scaffolds for skeletal muscle growth

Journal Article


Abstract


  • The engineering of skeletal muscle requires

    platforms that facilitate the proliferation and

    maintenance of primary muscle stem cells

    (myoblasts) and muscle fibre maturation in a

    manner that reflects native muscle structure.

    We have been investigating the use of

    nanostructured conducting polymer surfaces

    for the orientation and electrical stimulation of

    cells and tissues and have developed a hybrid

    conducting polymer and carbon nanotube

    plaform, suitable for ex vivo muscle growth,

    differentiation and electrical stimulation.
