The brain and spinal cord possess unique properties, including being able to send and receive electrical signals. My research group investigates novel methods for engineering neural tissue through the use of pluripotent stem cells and direct reprogramming of somatic cells, like fibroblasts and astrocytes. This talk will cover our recent advances to developing novel biomaterial strategies for engineering neural tissue from pluripotent stem cells and how they can be translated for applications in 3D printing.
