Abstract

An approach in tissue engineering employs a hybrid system combining biomaterials as structural scaffolds to organize living cells into a desired structure in vitro or in vivo. Polymers for these scaffolds require good biocompatibility, suitable biodegradability and the ability to interact specifically with appropriate cells. Lactide-based poly(ethylene glycol) polymer networks as scaffolds in tissue engineering are studied.
