sup][1] In response to inflammatory stimuli, neutrophils migrate from the circulating blood to infected tissues, where they can efficiently bind, engulf, and inactivate pathogens through phagocytosis, degranulation, and the release of neutrophil extracellular traps (NETs).
The resulting oxidative stress increases inflammation and triggers the excessive release of enzymes called matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs) that degrade extracellular matrix components that provide skin integrity and structure.
Among the topics are gradients and patterns within the extracellular matrix, the structure and assembly of laminin-rich matrices, modulating and tuning synthetic extracellular matrix mechanics, the spatial patterning of biomolecular presentation using biomaterial culture methods, controlling properties over time to mimic the dynamic extracellular matrix, and supramolecular artificial extracellular matrices.
