UW awarded a patent for electro-spinning co-developed by LFP resident

Tuesday, July 26, 2011


The University of Washington, Seattle, has been assigned a patent filed December 12, 2006 (7,981,353), developed by Stuart B. Mitchell, Lake Forest Park, WA, and Joan E. Sanders, Sammamish, WA, for a "method for controlled electrospinning."

According to reporter Satyaban Rath, "An electrospinning apparatus and methodology is described that produces medical devices, such as scaffolds that induce the formation of a natural fibrous structure (primarily collagen and elastin) in a tissue-engineered medical device." These are similar to or mimic the structure of animal tissue.
