Paper: Hydrogel with Orthogonal Reactive Units: 2D and 3D Cross-Linking Modulation

0 326

marc201770001-gra-0001-mUV lithography and 3D two-photon direct laser writing technology afford to alter hydrogel crosslinking degree in two and three dimensions, exploiting a specific chemistry design. Spatially controlled changes in hydrogel mechanical properties induce a biological response: elongated cells and higher proliferation are evident on 2D stiff patterns compared to the less cross-linked soft regions. Further details can be found in the article by G. Della Giustina, S. Giulitti, L. Brigo, M. Zanatta, M. Tromayer, R. Liska, N. Elvassore, and G. Brusatin*
