Biomaterials and Tissue Engineering

The concept of regenerating tissues with properties and functions that mimic natural tissues has attracted significant attention in recent years. It provides potential solutions for many healthcare problems, especially those associated with aging populations. To fully realize the potential of the approach, it is crucial to have a rational biomaterial design to create novel scaffolds, hydrogels, composites, and other materials systems suitable for tissue repair and regeneration. The biomaterials and tissue engineering thrust of the MSE Department is composed of a cluster of faculty members who are working on biomaterials for tissue regeneration.
