Regenerative Medicine & Stem Cells

regenerative medicine, bioprinting, jos malda

Living longer often tips the balance of healthy living, and is punctuated with incidental events. Our quality of life can be altered for many reasons: aging, chronic illness, trauma and disease, and there is often no curative solution.

Regenerative Medicine Center Utrecht

Our primary goal is to find better ways to repair tissue, restore function or replace cells in order to cure previously untreatable conditions. The recently established Regenerative Medicine Center Utrecht, brings together the largest mass of researchers in The Netherlands working in this diverse field. To expand our efforts further, we've co-established a new international cooperation, RegMed XB (Regenerative Medicine Crossing Borders). 

We're accelerating the development of regenerative therapies

Three focus areas

In Utrecht, we have the full bench to bedside capability and focus on three areas: CardioRenal Tissue Regneration, Musculoskeletal Tissue Regeneration and Stem Cell & Organoid Biology.

These are supported by a variety of technologies, including biofabrication, gene editing, proteomics and imaging. We have the capacity to combine scientific findings with advanced technologies in order to create novel therapeutic benefit for both human and animal patients.
