ROCKs and cancer invasion

The rigidity of the microenvironment around cancer cells drives invasive behavior through distinct ROCK signaling pathways, which could guide the development of specific anti-invasive therapies.

Wound-healing scaffolds

The elasticity of a scaffold used for healing skin wounds is a key factor in promoting regeneration versus scarring.

Delivering cells for heart repair

A polymer hydrogel material developed by Vanderbilt scientists improved the delivery of stem cells for heart repair.
