Injectable Chitosan Sponges as Viable Carriers for Cell encapsulation and Delivery

Cell encapsulation has a great potential in the field of regenerative medicine. In addition, this cell-based technology is gaining more attention due to its therapeutic potential in many other fields. The innovative nature of this work lies in utilisation of cells in a 3D environment and used them as providers of proteins and growth factors, which can be a potential alternative for delivery of biological therapeutics. For moving this technology forward, the partnership with ALIGO (industry partner), will be highly valuable to provide the business expertise and to move the technology from academia to the market.
