JBB Vol. 118 cover

A novel intelligent galactosylated-chitosan/hyaluronic acid hybrid sponge was developed for use in a dense co-culture system designed to simulate the liver microenvironment. The hematoxylin and eosin staining indicates that murine primary hepatocytes and human endothelial cells adhered to the sponges and formed clusters.
