The Tissue Engineering research laboratory
A basic research driven by clinical challenges
The tissue engineering laboratory studies the regeneration of soft and hard tissues that were damaged as a result of chronic diseases, cancer or physical injury. To engineer the ideal tissue, we use adipose- or bone marrow-derived stem cells, fabricate scaffolds that mimic the extracellular matrix to support cell proliferation and differentiation using nanotechnology, or adapt abundant body tissues, e.g., adipose tissue, to serve as ideal constructs for tissue regeneration. Moreover, we employ 3D printing technologies to investigate modifications in tissue structure as a result of environmental damage and to print scaffolds for clinical use.
