Established in 2019, the Tissue Regenerative Engineering Laboratory is working on developing bio-functional engineered tissues in an effort provide advanced therapeutic options for patients suffering from such conditions as birth defects, bone disorders, liver and vascular diseases. To do this, the TRE Lab will first develop a greater understanding of the biological and molecular processes involved in regenerative progression.
Tissue Engineering is the manipulation and integration of synthetic and natural biomaterial scaffolds, biologically active agents (such as growth factors or cytokines) and living cells into anatomically and/or functionally specific architectures in order to repair or replace damaged tissues. Regenerative Engineering looks specifically at the molecular and cellular mechanisms involved in regenerative progression to develop novel methodologies by which the body might learn to better repair itself. The TRE Lab integrates knowledge and processes from both of these closely related disciplines in its efforts to provide advanced therapeutic options for patients suffering from various forms of human tissue damage.
May 2020: Jacob Walls recently completed his Bachelor's Degree in Biomedical Engineering with a focus in natural polymer based nano particle drug delivery models for in vivo and in vitro studies. Congratulations Jacob!
