TERMIS 2021 | Nerve regeneration with polyhydroxyalkanoate-based conduits

Ipsita Roy, PhD, University of Sheffield, Sheffield, UK, provides an overview of polyhydroxyalkanoate (PHA)-based nerve guidance conduits for peripheral nerve regeneration. Changes in the PHA formulation resulted in the creation of a stiff, but elastic tubular structure and in vivo studies demonstrated that the scaffold regenerated damaged nerves after a 10 week period as effectively as autologously transplanted nerves. This interview took place at the 6th World Congress of the Tissue Engineering and Regenerative Medicine International Society (TERMIS 2021).
