- Reconstruction of Vascular Structure with Multicellular Components Using Cell Transfer Printing Methods
Yu Bin Lee, Indong Jun, Seongwoo Bak, Young Min Shin, Youn-Mook Lim, Hansoo Park and Heungsoo Shin
Article first published online: 7 MAR 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/adhm.201300548
Natural vessels have concentric structure that is composed of three different layers (tunica adventitia, tunica media, tunica intima). Cell transfer printing method is developed, which can deliver cell monolayer on target substrate to mimic the vascular structure. A construct with multicellular components is fabricated by stamping monolayers of vessel-forming cells on nanofiber substrate and rolling.
- Effects of GDNF-Loaded Injectable Gelatin-Based Hydrogels on Endogenous Neural Progenitor Cell Migration
Deniece Fon, Aswan Al-Abboodi, Peggy P. Y. Chan, Kun Zhou, Peter Crack, David I. Finkelstein and John S. Forsythe

An injectable gelatin-based hydrogel is targeted towards the adult rat subventricular zone in an attempt to attract neural progenitors towards the implant. GDNF encapsulation and porosity within the hydrogel prevent glial scar formation, moreover, neuroblasts were attracted to the hydrogels 7 d after implantation. The figure shows neuroblasts (green) migrating from the lateral ventricle (LV) to the implant (*).
- Neuritogenic Surfaces Using Natural Product Analogs
Patrick Burch, Fabian Schmid and Karl Gademann
Article first published online: 4 MAR 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/adhm.201300671
Neuritogenic surfaces are generated by a simple dip-coating procedure, as glass slides are coated with a neurotrophin-like small organic molecule in the presence of a collagen matrix. The surfaces retain their biological activity for multiple cycles and the protocol is suitable for various substrates and coating conditions.

Article first published online: 4 MAR 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/adhm.201300614
The integration of an ionic liquid gel on conformal electrodes is investigated for applications in long-term cutaneous recordings. Electrodes made of Au and the conducting polymer PEDOT:PSS coated with the gel show a low impedance in contact with the skin that maintains a steady value over several days, paving the way for non-invasive, long-term monitoring of human electrophysiological activity.
