Mesenchymal stem cell mechanics on osteoinductive peptide nanofibers
(Bilkent University, 2017-08)
In this thesis, changes in Young's modulus of mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) were investigated during their osteogenic differentiation on bioactive peptide nanofibers that bear triple glutamic acid sequence (EEE), a ...
Bioactive peptide nanofibers for tissue regeneration
(Bilkent University, 2016-01)
Defects in the tissues or organs caused by trauma or diseases can have detrimental effects on all aspects of patients’ life quality. During the last three decades, considerable developments have been made in tissue engineering ...
Self-assembled peptide based biomaterials for drug delivery and regenerative medicine
