Bencherif Lab publishes “Engineering hyaluronic acid-based cryogels for CD44-mediated breast tumor reconstruction” in Materials Today Bio

Congratulations to Mahboobeh Rezaeeyazdi and team (Thibault Colombani, Loek Eggermont, and Prof. Sidi A. Bencherif) on their recent publication in Materials Today Bio. This work reports the design of biomimetic cryogel scaffolds fabricated from hyaluronic acid (HA) as a platform to reconstruct CD44-positive breast tumor microtissues with aspects of the complex tumor microenvironment in 3D. 

HA-based cryogels represent an effective starting point for designing more realistic tumor models for preclinical research, therapeutic drug screening, and early cancer diagnosis.
