1. To evaluate the influence of different ratio of col/HA on porosity parameters of produced gradient porous scaffold. 2. To evaluate the influence of different quenching rates on porosity parameters of produced gradient porous scaffold. 3. To analyze the in vitro cellular response of hMSC on gradient porous scaffold of various range of porosity parameters. 4. To explain the relationship between cellular behavior and porosity parameters in an attempt to define optimum porosity range for enhanced bone regeneration.
