Revolutionary Hybrid Polymer Enhances Tissue Engineering

Researchers have developed a new type of hybrid polymer called PEU/POSS, which shows great potential in tissue engineering. This material is strong and compatible with living tissues. It forms a porous structure that allows embryonic stem cells (ESCs) to grow and change into different types of cells, which is important for repairing damaged tissues. Studies found that PEU/POSS matrices support cell growth and function like natural materials found in the body. This new polymer could be crucial for future medical treatments, providing a strong and versatile option for creating the materials needed to grow new tissues.
