A bioengineered graft for improved bone regeneration
Bone regeneration using engineered grafts must guide the growth of new bone and enable it to integrate into the surrounding tissue. To facilitate this process and improve bone regeneration, the EU-funded HEALIKICK project is working on a novel combinatorial approach that employs a granular graft material with a highly osteogenic coating seeded with pre-differentiated osteogenic adipose mesenchymal stromal cells (MSCs). Scientists will validate this approach initially in pre-clinical studies, with the aim to submit the required regulatory and technical developments for clinical trial. They will also undertake the necessary optimisation and development activities to adapt this approach for the treatment of large bone defects.
