Regenerative medicine aims to repair injured or diseased tissues using a multidisciplinary approach to stimulate natural repair mechanisms or promote healing through the transplantation of cells, often the patient’s own stem cells.
Tissue engineering and regenerative medicine aim to either replace diseased or damaged tissue with a functional, laboratory-grown substitute, or stimulate the body’s own cells in order to promote repair.
The Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) is the main UK government agency for funding research and training in engineering and the physical sciences, investing more than £850m a year.
This is an exciting opportunity for a student with a background in Chemistry, Biochemistry or closely related areas who has a strong interest in applying organic synthetic chemistry and biocatalysis to the creation of new peptide-based materials for biomedical applications.
1st Supervisor - Dr Christos Bergeles. 2nd Supervisor - Professor Kawal Rhode. Chip-on-tip steerable endoscopes are rapidly improving due to tandem innovation in robotics technology and highly-integrated cameras.
This paper-based (dry) project supports development of safe regenerative medicine methods which impact treatment of unmet clinical needs causing some of societies’ greatest health challenges including type1 diabetes, and end-stage organ failure (kidney/heart/liver).
