Abstract

In spite of recent progress in the field of adipose tissue engineering, the optimal adipose tissue scaffold still remains illusive and the tailoring of the structure and properties of tissue scaffolds according to adipose tissue were less explored or even neglected. Thus, synthetic poly(glycerol sebacate) (PGS)-based scaffolds and hydrogels which mimic the properties of adipose tissue were developed in this PhD project for potential application in adipose tissue engineering.
