Oral #5: MICHAEL TAO – Using Collagen-Based Hydrogels To Enhance Cardiomyocyte Differentiation and Direct Structural Alignment In-Vitro

<< Return to the Main Page

Faculty mentor: Martin Tristani-Firouzi

The proposed project will optimize engineered collagen-based hydrogels that will serve to mimic the local extracellular matrix to guide human pluripotent stem cell-derived cardiomyocytes towards anisotropic alignment. The project seeks to optimize electromechanical coupling while providing topographical guidance for hPSC-CMs in vivo.
