Macular Degeneration: Preserving Eyesight Through Regeneration Science

Abstract:
From Microtechnology to Nanotechnology

Tao uses specialized equipment in the California Institute for Quantitative Biomedical Research (QB3) Biomedical Micro and Nanofabrication Center at UCSF to construct scaffolds - thin discs of biodegradable polymer. The flexible scaffold is designed to sit snugly against the mouse's retina and hold the stem cells in place as they develop. The scaffolds are one millimeter in diameter, but only six micrometers thick - thinner than the width of most mammalian cells.
