Abstract : In recent years, various biocompatible polymers have been utilized to fabricate porous scaffolds or injectable carriers for cell culture or regenerate tissue-based artificial organs. In this presentation, various types of polymeric biomaterials for biomedical and tissue engineering applications carried out in our laboratory will be discussed. They include 3-D cell scaffolds for cartilage or bone regeneration, 2-D asymmetric porous membrane or tube for guided bone, tendon or nerve regeneration, and injectable porous beads and hydrogel systems as a tissue adhesion barrier or bulking agent for urinary/fecal incontinence treatment.
