Peptide hydrogels for the treatment of neurodegenerative diseases
thesisposted on 11.08.2018 by JULIAN CHARLES RATCLIFFE
In order to distinguish essays and pre-prints from academic theses, we have a separate category. These are often much longer text based documents than a paper.
This thesis outlines the design of two new hydrogels which are capable of supporting the growth and survival of neural cells in the brain. The hydrogels were analysed as potential treatments for diseases such as Parkinson’s disease, with the aim of restoring brain function.
