    • Bioactive composites fabricated by freezing-thawing method for bone regeneration applications. 

      Canillas, Maria; de Lima, Gabriel Goetten; Rodríguez, Miguel A.; Nugent, Michael J.D.; Devine, Declan M. (Wiley, 2016-04)
      Hydrogels are widely used for controlled delivery of therapeutic agents. However, hydrogels lack bioactivity to encourage bone formation and mechanical integrity. Moreover, chemically crosslinked hydrogels exhibit cytotoxic ...
    • Composite cryogels for dual drug delivery and enhanced mechanical properties. 

      de Lima, Gabriel Goetten; Traon, Fanny; Moal, Eloan; Canillas, Maria; Dunne, Nicholas; Devine, Declan M.; Nugent, Michael D. (Wiley, 2018-04)
      In this study, we present a simple and effective process that integrates hydrogels with drugs + ceramics via physical crosslinks resulting in improved mechanical properties. These cryogels have the potential for controlled ...
