The STBL has received funding from the NIH to develop a tissue engineered vascular graft that is fully biodegradable, compliance matched, and maintains that compliance as it is degraded in-vivo. This project involves close collaboration with several other investigators at Pitt and elsewhere. The funded research will involve rodent implantations and culminate with large animal (sheep) implantations quantifying improved efficacy for these small diameter grafts.
