The primary goals of this project were achieved. These included the development of a reliable method to evaluate the interaction of blood cells with polymer films; the quantification of the attachment and proliferation of endothelial cells with biodegradable polymer films; the development of 3 independent surface modification methods that enhanced endothelialization rates; the identification of key factors that govern the growth of endothelial cells on polymers.
