Tissue Engineering is a multidisciplinary field that applies the principles of engineering, material science, biology, and medicine toward the development of tissue-mimetic scaffolds that restore, maintain, or improve tissue function or body organs. While our work is mainly focused on design and fabrication of composites of natural and synthetic biomaterials for tissue regeneration and various medical applications for addressing medical problems, our activities go beyond basic research and include translational research, evaluation, regulation, and GMP production and commercialization of biomaterials technologies and medical devices.
