The present invention provides decellularized cartilage (DCC) fragments or powder as a raw material component to be utilized for scaffolds and provides a microenvironment similar to that of native cartilage tissue. The DCC powder provides a platform technology upon which many cartilage, or even bone, tissue engineering scaffolds could be based.

Novel ligands designed to activate mu opioid receptors and provide analgesic effects without opioid-related side effects, providing specific insight into the cellular impact of opioid receptor-based activation as related to pain medications.  These ligands could be used as a tool to negate drug tolerance and dependence as well as other adverse side effects.

KU researchers have invented a high-pressure reactor equipped with an internal ultrasonic mixer that is useful for preparing nanomaterials and for conducting reactions with ozone and other reactive gases.  The apparatus facilitates the use of supercritical carbon dioxide (CO2) as a solvent, allowing the advantages of the solvent properties of the supercritical fluid and the agitation achievable using ultrasonic energy.
