Description: The goal of this project is to engineer a defined, synthetic poly(ethylene glycol) (PEG) hydrogel as a model system to investigate smooth muscle cell (SMC) proliferation in three-dimensions (3-D). To mimic the properties of extracellular matrix, both cell-adhesive peptide (GRGDSP) and matrix metalloproteinase (MMP) sensitive peptide (VPMSMRGG or GPQGIAGQ) were incorporated into the PEG macromer chain. Copolymerization of the biomimetic macromers results in the formation of bioactive hydrogels with the dual properties of cell adhesion and proteolytic degradation.
