Materials for Regenerative Medicine
Restoring tissue and organ function with intelligent, life-like materials
The central goal of this focus area in Complex Molecular Systems is to investigate, design and use intelligent life-like materials that drive the regeneration of living tissues and organs inside the human body ('in situ'). As such, the research builds on a fundamental understanding of the dynamic reciprocal interactions between materials and the biological processes of regeneration at length scales ranging from molecule to man.
To address the challenges and remain at the very forefront of regenerative medicine research, top-notch technology and bioengineering platforms are developed to support the program and its researchers. This includes multiscale dynamic visualization and quantification of our systems across length scales.
