Purdue researchers create templates on retinal tissues

Abstract:
Researchers at Purdue University have created scaffold-like patterns on the surface of a pig's retina, making templates out of molecular compounds called peptides that could promote the growth of transplanted healthy cells to treat age-related macular degeneration. Macular degeneration destroys light-sensing cells in the retina. Researchers at other institutions have hypothesized that placing templates on the retina could enable transplanted cells to take hold and grow.
