IIT Hyderabad produces collagen for stem cell-based tissue engineering from waste eel skin

Hyderabad | India

Indian Institute of Technology Hyderabad Researchers have derived collagen from waste eel skin and shown that tissue scaffolds built using such collagen allow growth and proliferation of stem cells. The practical applications of this research can lead to utilising eel fish skin-derived collagen as a promising alternative to animal derived collagen, which are expensive and associated with pathological diseases.
