Many organs lack the ability to regenerate after an injury. Healing means that the affected area is replaced by scar tissue, which does not have the original function. The regenerative medicine field of research aims at recreating functional organs.
WCMM at LiU focuses on the medicine-technology interface, and build upon our existing strengths in research within medical technology, materials science and bioengineering.
We carry out research in the fields of experimental orthopedics, surgery and oncology.
What characterizes the Department of Biomedical and Clinical Sciences (BKV) is the wide breadth of research and education. BKV is one of the largest departments at LiU with affiliation mainly to the Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences.
