The NanoRegen focus group aims to aid the advances in nano-structured materials and biomaterials for use in tissue engineering, with a view to ensuring the UK remains at the forefront of the technology area.
Tissue engineering is a multidisciplinary field that applies the principles of engineering and the life sciences in the development of biological substitutes that restore, maintain, or improve tissue and organ function. Novel tissue replacement parts and implementation strategies have been developed, which aim to improve health and quality of life by restoring, maintaining, or enhancing tissue and organ function. Regenerative medicine is a subset of tissue engineering, which has the ability to deliver step-change therapies and cures for medical conditions.
NanoRegen works to bring together researchers, clinicians, industrialists and other experts in this area to enable this community to share ideas and experience, collaborate effectively and to secure the project funding which allow the development, and ultimately commercialisation, of key opportunities.
