Purdue startup is developing self-assembling, bioinstructive collagen materials for research, medical applications

(April 8, 2015)  A Purdue University researcher and entrepreneur is commercializing her laboratory's innovative collagen formulations that self-assemble or polymerize to form fibrils that resemble those found in the body's tissues.

These collagen building blocks can be used to create customized three-dimensional tissue and organs outside the body to support basic biological research, drug discovery and chemical toxicity testing. In addition, they can be used to create next generation tissue engineered medical products that foster improved tissue integration and regeneration
