Development of Electrospun 3D Biomaterials

The motivation for the research conducted over the summer semester was to understand the mechanical properties of three-dimensional electrospun rolled scaffolds made from Polycaprolactone. To determine how scaffold thickness may influence mechanical properties, samples were electrospun at various times. These samples were then rolled to create a three-dimensional scaffold. After confirming the 3D structure of the samples via scanning electron microscopy, the parameter tested was the modulus and the amount of time electrospun. The data presented here displays that stiffness properties did not depend on the thickness of the scaffold.
