Advanced Materials in Medicine

Tissue engineering

We focus on specific instances of regenerative medicine which utilise advanced materials, such as the use of both rigid and soft tissue scaffolds for bone and cartilage regeneration, and use clinical expertise to enable the translation of materials based medical innovation.

Regenerative medicine aims to repair, replace or regenerate damaged tissues, using cell, or gene therapy and tissue engineering. This, however, requires a multidisciplinary approach, bringing together biologists, material scientists, bioengineers and clinicians in order to translate basic biological research into viable clinical therapies.

Building on Manchester’s critical mass of internationally renowned leaders in the disciplines relevant to regenerative medicine, we deliver a step-advance in the basic science components of regenerative medicine, translational outputs, grant income and reputation and focus on specific instances of regenerative medicine which utilise advanced materials, such as the use of both rigid and soft tissue scaffolds for bone and cartilage regeneration.
