Abstract

We report a new class of β-peptide based hydrogel for neural tissue engineering. Our β-peptide forms a network of nanofibres in aqueous solution, resulting in a stable hydrogel at physiological conditions. The hydrogel shows excellent compatibility with neural cells and provides a suitable environment for cells to adhere and proliferate.
