      Russell, Brooke H.; Hook, Magnus; Hahn, Mariah S.; Cosgriff-hernandez, Elizabeth M.; Seo, Neungseon; Xu, Marvin Xuejun; Rivera, Jose J.; Browning, Mary Beth (United States. Patent and Trademark OfficeTexas A&M University. Libraries, 2017-08-08)
      The present disclosure provides synthetic collagen and methods of making and using synthetic collagen that include a synthetic collagen that facilitates wound closure comprising an isolated and purified triple helical ...
    • Development of Multilayer Vascular Grafts Based on Collagen-Mimetic Hydrogels 

      Browning, Mary Beth (2013-07-29)
      Current synthetic vascular grafts have high failure rates in small-diameter (<6 mm) applications due to inadequate cell-material interactions and poor matching of arterial biomechanical properties. To address this, we have ...
    • Implant-based repair of osteochondral defects 

      Grunlan, Melissa A.; Hahn, Mariah S.; Saunders, William B. (United States. Patent and Trademark OfficeTexas A&M University. Libraries, 2020-04-21)
      The present invention is directed to a unique technology for preparing a growth-factor free, cylindrical, hydrogel implant that has multiple (three or more) longitudinal hydrogel zones with varying chemical and physical ...
    • Tissue Engineering Approaches for the Treatment of Knee Joint Damage 

      McMahon, Rebecca Erin (2012-07-16)
      There are more than 150,000 anterior cruciate ligament reconstructions each year with the goal of recovering the balance between knee stability and mobility. As many as 25 percent of these procedures will end in joint ...
    • Using Self-Assembled Block Copolymer Macrostructures for Creating a Model System for Cell Mimicry 

      Gaspard, Jeffery Simon (2011-02-22)
      The objective of this research is to investigate three classes of block copolymers, the vesicle structures they form, their response to stimuli in solution and their capabilities for use in biomimicry. The self-assembled ...
