24_01i/2012Bioactive Hydrogels: Maleimide Cross-Linked Bioactive PEG Hydrogel Exhibits Improved Reaction Kinetics and Cross-Linking for Cell Encapsulation and In Situ Delivery (Adv. Mater. 1/2012)

The cover image shows a biofunctionalized hydrogel that is bonded directly onto myocardial tissue, delivering regenerative cells and therapeutics. On page 64, Andrés García and co-workers describe how maleimide-based cross-linking improves polyethylene glycol hydrogel engineering, leading to rapid gelation, high cytocom-patibility, and facile in situ delivery.
