    • Bioprinting decellularized breast tissue for the development of three-dimensional breast cancer models 

      Blanco Fernández, Bárbara; Rey Viñoles, Sergi; Bagci, Gülsün; Rubi Sans, Gerard; Otero, Jorge; Navajas Navarro, Daniel; Pérez Amodio, Soledad Graciela; Engel López, Elisabeth (2022-06-23)
      Open Access
      The tumor extracellular matrix (ECM) plays a vital role in tumor progression and drug resistance. Previous studies have shown that breast tissue-derived matrices could be an important biomaterial to recreate the complexity ...
    • Development and angiogenic potential of cell-derived microtissues using microcarrier-template 

      Rubi Sans, Gerard; Cano Garcia, Irene; Pérez Amodio, Soledad Graciela; Blanco, Bárbara; Mateos Timoneda, Miguel Ángel; Engel López, Elisabeth (2021-02-25)
      Open Access
      Tissue engineering and regenerative medicine approaches use biomaterials in combination with cells to regenerate lost functions of tissues and organs to prevent organ transplantation. However, most of the current strategies ...
    • Development of a three-dimensional bioengineered platform for articular cartilage regeneration 

      Rubi Sans, Gerard; Recha Sancho, Lourdes; Pérez Amodio, Soledad Graciela; Mateos Timoneda, Miguel Ángel; Semino Margrett, Carlos Eduardo; Engel López, Elisabeth (2020-01-01)
      Open Access
      Degenerative cartilage pathologies are nowadays a major problem for the world population. Factors such as age, genetics or obesity can predispose people to suffer from articular cartilage degeneration, which involves severe ...
    • Engineered microtissues for the bystander therapy against cancer 

      Blanco Fernández, Bárbara; Cano Torres, Irene; Garrido, Cristina; Rubi Sans, Gerard; Sanchez Cid, Lourdes; Guerra Rebollo, Marta; Rubio, Nuria; Blanco, Jeronimo; Pérez Amodio, Soledad Graciela; Mateos Timoneda, Miguel Ángel; Engel López, Elisabeth (Elsevier, 2021-02-01)
      Restricted access - publisher's policy
      Thymidine kinase expressing human adipose mesenchymal stem cells (TK-hAMSCs) in combination with ganciclovir (GCV) are an effective platform for antitumor bystander therapy in mice models. However, this strategy requires ...
    • Engineering cell-derived matrices: from 3D models to advanced personalized therapies 

      Rubi Sans, Gerard; Castaño Linares, Óscar; Cano Torres, Irene; Mateos Timoneda, Miguel Ángel; Pérez Amodio, Soledad Graciela; Engel López, Elisabeth (2020-07-02)
      Open Access
      Regenerative medicine and disease models have evolved in recent years from two to three dimensions, providing in vitro constructs that are more similar to in vivo tissues. By mimicking native tissues, cell-derived matrices ...
