Oncofertility Publications - Biomaterials
These publications highlight the development, optimization, and characterization of alginate hydrogels to grow follicles in a three-dimensional environment that mimics the ovarian architecture. We are currently striving to develop novel biomaterials for growing follicles such as the interpenetrating fibrin-alginate matrix developed by Shikanov et al.
