Darja Marolt Evaluates Bone Scaffolds in a Paper Published in Biomaterials

Darja Marolt, PhD, a NYSCF – Helmsley Investigator, is author on a paper from work undertaken as a postdoctorate published in Biomaterials, in which she and colleagues built off past investigations on the use of decellularized bone as a scaffold for bone formation with human embryonic stem (hES) cells. They evaluated how the scaffold’s density and mineral content affected hES cell-derived mesenchymal progenitors in the formation of bone-like tissue. Of the three different bone scaffold density groups, the medium density displayed the greatest degree of new bone matrix formation, and the presence of bone mineral increased growth of new bone matrix.
