Goal: Hydrogels as cell-adhesive sealants towards articular cartilage repair 

Illustration: Applied hyaluronic acid hydrogel atop cartilage defects forms a stable sealing by interpenetrating with secreted matrix proteins (scale bars 50 µm).

Goal: Hydrogels to support orthotopic transplantation of alveolar progenitor cells
