ACS Editor’s Choice features collaboration between Drs. Park and Mestroni

A collaborative research by Drs. Park (Bioengineering) and Mestroni (Cardiovascular Institute), titled “Biomimetic Polymers for Cardiac Tissue Engineering”, was featured as ACS Editor’s Choice. In this research, Dr. Pena (Postdoctoral Researcher) developed a biomimetic injectable system that can increase survival of both neonatal and adult rat ventricular cardiomyocytes (CMs). This research will provide new treatment platform for CM transplantation to repair heart function in a minimally invasive manner.
