Regenerative Engineering Laboratory -
Medical Textiles & Tissue Engineering

Our laboratory's research interest is to investigate at the interface between fundamental and applied research, by combining the principles of Textile Technology and Tissue Engineering:
(i) to develop novel engineering solutions for complex clinical diseases,
(ii) to gain better qualitative and quantitative understanding of the tissue microenvironmental conditions fundamental for tissue developments and pathogenesis.
