Project Description

Stem Cells and Cartilage/Bone Tissue Engineering

Osteoarthritis (OA) is the most common cause of pain and disability in Australia, affecting 1.6 million Australians and a predicted 3 million by 2030. Whilst it is becoming widely recognised that tissue engineered solutions offer great promise in terms of providing effective repair of cartilage defects and ultimately prevention of the development of OA post trauma, the field has so far failed to deliver a highly efficacious product.

Our laboratory is developing novel strategies to repair cartilage defects. The advertised project AIMs to develop artificial cartilage/bone tissues. The overall AIM of this project is to assemble a mechanically robust osteochondral tissue and use it to repair cartilage defects in a sheep model in preparation for clinical translation.


This PhD Project in Dr Mike Doran’s laboratory comes with a full scholarship and is open to international candidates.
