Bencherif Nominated as Biomaterials Science Emerging Investigator 2021
ChE Assistant Professor Sidi A. Bencherif and team have recently published a research article in Biomaterials Science for their work on “Engineering a macroporous fibrin-based sequential interpenetrating polymer network for dermal tissue engineering”. This article reports on the synthesis and characterization of a new type of naturally derived and macroporous interpenetrating polymer network (IPN) for skin repair.
This article is part of the themed collection: Biomaterials Science Emerging Investigators 2021. This collection gathers the very best work from biomaterials scientists in the early stages of their independent careers. The 2021 Biomaterials Science Emerging Investigators were individually nominated by members of the journal Editorial and Advisory Boards, and previous Emerging Investigators, in recognition of their potential to influence future directions in the field of biomaterials.
