Advanced Science News featured the article Magnetic Healing of Brain Injury by Professor Allain’s group highlighting the magnetic natural hydrogel MBNC as a novel, multi-functional biomaterial that would provide a focal magnetic attractive force at the local region near the aneurysm neck orifice.  The RSSEL group recently published on this new alternative method of using scaffold stents to create a local and focal attraction force of cells for an in situ reconstruction of the tunica media in the article titled Bacterial Nanocellulose Magnetically Functionalized for Neuro-Endovascular Treatment in the journal of Macromolecular Bioscience.
