Understanding how scaffolds affect dental cells is crucial to the design of new strategies to regenerate the pulp-dentin complex. Previous studies have shown that stem cells are sensitive to their mechanical environment; substrate elastic modulus can influence bone marrow stromal cell (BMSC) differentiation. Since substrate modulus may also influence dental pulp stem cell (DPSC) differentiation, the goal of this CI group is to investigate what mechanical and chemical cues may influence the osteogenic/odontogenic potential of DPSCs.
