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 our critical mass of internationally renowned leaders in the Life, Clinical and Material sciences, we are breaking down these barriers by creating an integrated framework across Manchester which will:
- Bring together basic scientists from the different disciplines to enhance the University’s capacity in Regenerative Medicine and enable strategic multidisciplinary grant bids.
- Help basic scientist move their projects into clinical protocols by creating links with clinicians interested in translating new cell, gene and bioengineering protocols to the clinic.
To facilitate and accelerate the “Bench to Bedside” movement of regenerative therapies, in addition to fostering the development of novel Regenerative Medicine technologies, we provide the following resources to researchers and clinicians:
