A nanofiber matrix for healing

Human stem cells that grew on the 'fiber-on fiber' culturing system

A matrix made of gelatin nanofibers on a synthetic polymer microfiber mesh may provide a better way to culture large quantities of healthy human stem cells. Developed by a team of researchers led by Ken-ichiro Kamei, Li Liu and Yong Chen of Kyoto University iCeMS, the ‘fiber-on-fiber’ (FF) matrix improves on currently available stem cell culturing techniques.
