Final Report - CORNEA ENGINEERING (Three-dimensional reconstruction of human corneas by tissue engineering)

Project ID: 504017
Funded under: FP6-NMP

Abstract

This is the final report for the CORNEA ENGINEERING project, whose overall aim of this project was to carry out research leading to the three-dimensional (3D) reconstruction of human corneas. In order to do so, part of the project was aimed at producing 3D cell scaffolds resembling, as close as possible, the natural extracellular matrix (ECM). This required production of recombinant human ECM proteins and their processing enzymes, including functional studies on the roles of these enzymes and associated proteins. Images of the project are also included.
