Tissue Engineering & Regenerative Medicine

There exists significant expertise in the TCBE in all three aspects of the ‘Tissue Engineering Triad’ –cell biology, biomaterials and both physicochemical and biological signals. Novel projects in this area include – the development of growth factor or gene delivery scaffolds, the exploration of the therapeutic potential of MSCs isolated from diseased joints and the development of in vitro culture systems that enable the engineering of tissues using MSCs with compositions and organizations mimicking that of normal tissue. These projects are being conducted with clinical collaborators to facilitate rapid translation to the clinic. While the initial focus has been in the fields of orthopaedic and cardiovascular medicine, there exists a clear potential to expand this expertise into other areas of medicine.
