Abstract: Synthetic polymer nanofiber conduit was fabricated to act as a guiding construct for peripheral nerve gap repair. The conduit consisted of two layers of nanofiber membranes - inner layer of aligned nanofibers to guide axon outgrowth; outer layer of randomly arranged nanofibers to provide mechanical integrity. Furthermore, intra-luminal guidance channels made from strands of aligned nanofibers were fabricated to closely imitate the intact nerve architecture of the basal laminae and bands of BC
