Akhilesh K. Gaharwar, Ph.D.

AIMBE College of Fellows Class of 2022
For his seminal contributions in designing bio-instructive materials towards regenerative medicine, drug delivery and 3D bioprinting applications.

Engineering researchers develop porous nanoparticles for regenerative medicine

Via Science Daily | March 30, 2022

Stem cells can develop into many different types of cells in the body. For instance, when a person is injured, stem cells come to the site of the injury and aid in healing damaged tissues. New nanotechnology developed by a team of researchers from Texas A&M University could leverage the body’s regenerative potential by directing stem cells to form bone tissue.

Akhilesh K. Gaharwar, associate professor and Presidential Impact Fellow in the Department of Biomedical Engineering and a fellow of the American Institute for Medical and Biological Engineering, leads the team. The researchers have developed water-stable, 2D covalent organic framework (COF) nanoparticles that can direct the differentiation of human mesenchymal stem cells into bone cells… Continue reading.
