Neural interfaces using biocompatible scaffolds provide crucial properties for the functional repair of nerve injuries and neurodegenerative diseases, including cell adhesion, structural support, and mass transport. Neural stimulation has also been found to be effective in promoting neural regeneration. This work provides a new strategy to integrate photoacoustic (PA) neural stimulation into hydrogel scaffolds using a nanocomposite hydrogel approach. Specifically, polyethylene glycol (PEG)-funct...

Biomaterial scaffold designs are needed for self-organizing features related to tissue formation while also simplifying the fabrication processes involved. Toward this goal, silk protein-based self-folding scaffolds to support 3D cell culture, while providing directional guidance and promotion of cell growth and differentiation, are reported. A simple and robust one-step self-folding approach is developed using bilayers consisting of a hydrogel and silk film in aqueous solution. The 3D silk roll...
