4D-Printed Programmable Culture Substrate for Controlling Neural Stem Cell Growth
­Neural stem cells (NSCs) exhibit great promise for treating neurodegenerative diseases and injuries. Treatments will rely on efficient proliferation and differentiation of NSCs into neurons with therapeutic characteristics. Static 2D and 3D microenvironment culture substrates fail to cater to the dynamic cell needs, resulting in sub-optimal, inefficient...
