Engineered polyethylene glycol-maleimide matrices for regenerative medicine exhibit improved reaction efficiency and a wider range of Young's moduli by utilizing maleimide cross-linking chemistry. This hydrogel chemistry is advantageous for cell delivery due to the mild reaction that occurs rapidly enough for in situ delivery, while easily lending itself to “plug-and-play” design variations such as incorporation of enzyme-cleavable cross-links and cell-adhesion peptides.
