Biomimetic Anti-Inflammatory Membrane for Chronic Wound Healing
The invention is a collagen membrane functionalized with mannose for the treatment of chronic wounds. Due to its mannose coating, this membrane is able to induce the polarization of macrophages to an anti-inflammatory state, resulting in less overall inflammation during wound repair. Stage of Development In vitro data: Membrane synthesis and characterization...

Periosteum-Like Scaffold for Bone Regeneration
This invention is an implantable, biomimetic scaffold which mimics the native structure of the human periosteum and is independently capable of regenerating bone tissue. This periosteum-like scaffold is composed of three layers comprising 1) a non-porous compact collagen layer, or a fibroblastic zone; 2) a collagen/elastin layer, which permits vascularization...
