Engineering the functional restoration of tissues and organs

Regenerative Medicine and Technology (RMT) combines fundamental disciplines such as stem cell biology, materials science and biomechanics with more applied disciplines such as cell therapy, implantology and imaging. New collaborations amongst these disciplines can assist in innovation in fundamental life sciences but also in new patient therapies and clinical applications with the ultimate goal to restore lost tissue or organ function.
