According to a study from Canada, "A hydrogel scaffold of well-defined geometry was created and modified with laminin-derived peptides in an aqueous solution, thereby maintaining the geometry of the scaffold while introducing bioactive peptides that enhance cell adhesion and neurite outgrowth.
"By combining a fiber templating technique to create longitudinal channels with peptide modification, we were able to synthesize a scaffold that guided cell adhesion and neurite outgrowth of primary neurons."
"Scaffolds were designed to have numerous longitudinally...
