PhD Defense |Modification of poly(vinyl alcohol) for vascular graft applicationExport this event to calendar

Thursday, July 22, 2021 — 9:00 AM EDT

Yuan Yao will defend his PhD thesis on Modification of poly(vinyl alcohol) for vascular graft application.  This is a closed Defense.

Abstract

Polyvinyl alcohol (PVA) hydrogel has shown its potential for vascular graft application due to its tunable mechanical properties. However, PVA does not support cell adhesion. This project was set out to develop modification strategies to improve cell adhesion on PVA. Biochemical modification with a sulfated polysaccharide and biophysical modification with topographical patterning were investigated and developed. The findings from this project will benefit the development of vascular engineering..
