Abstract : We have successfully synthesized and characterized an injectable hydrogel biomaterial with tunable thermosensitivity and the capability for covalent attachment of therapeutic peptides. This new material can be tuned and tested with the purpose of delivery a gel to the injured brain that becomes responsive to the injury environment. This work resulted in a publication in the Journal of Controlled Release (J Control Release. 2015 Jun 28;208:76-84).
