A new class of injectable nanocomposite thermogels having excellent cell-compatibility were developed through cooperative self-assembly of biodegradable poly(lactide-co-glycolide)-b-poly(ethylene glycol)-b-poly(lactide- co-glycolide) copolymer micelles and clay nanosheets for effective cell delivery. This study will be valuable for the establishment of injectable cell delivery technology.
