Investigation of spontaneous differentiation of neural stem cells on synthetic scaffolds
(Bilkent University, 2017-08)
Despite the increasing incidents of brain injuries and neurodegenerative diseases, a definitive clinical therapy for these conditions has not been found yet. Nervous system injuries result in loss of neural cells, causing ...
Eliciting immune response by using nanostructures
(Bilkent University, 2017-06)
The ability of dendritic cells to coordinate innate and adaptive immune responses makes them essential targets for vaccination strategies. Presentation of specific antigens by dendritic cells is required for the activation ...
Design and application of nerve growth factor-β binding peptide nanofibers for neural regeneration
(Bilkent University, 2016-11)
Promotion of neurite outgrowth is an important limiting step for the regeneration of nerve injury and depends strongly on the local expression of nerve growth factor (NGF). Rational design of bioactive materials is a ...
