      Çınar, Göksu; Mumcuoğlu, Didem; Tekinay, Ayşe B.; Güler, Mustafa O. (John Wiley & Sons, 2016-03-11)
      This chapter focuses on advanced delivery of biologics including growth factors (GFs), cytokines, genes, or siRNAs using a variety of nanosized systems for different regeneration applications focusing on bone, cartilage, ...
    • Neural differentiation on synthetic scaffold materials 

      Mammadov, Busra; Sever, Melike; Güler, Mustafa O.; Tekinay, Ayşe B. (Royal Society of Chemistry, 2013)
      The potential of stem cells to differentiate into a variety of subgroups of neural cells makes stem cell differentiation and transplantation a promising candidate for neurodegenerative disorder therapies. However, selective ...
    • Neural ECM mimetics 

      Estrada, V.; Tekinay, Ayşe B.; Müller, H. W. (Elsevier, 2014)
      The consequence of numerous neurological disorders is the significant loss of neural cells, which further results in multilevel dysfunction or severe functional deficits. The extracellular matrix (ECM) is of tremendous ...
