Skin Tissue Engineering and Regenerative Medicine: From skin repair to regeneration

Project description

Training a new generation of scientists in skin organogenesis

Treating skin burns and large trauma using transplantation of autologous split-thickness skin carries a number of serious drawbacks, including pain, mobility-limiting contractures and disfiguring scars. The EU-funded SkinTERM project aims to address wound healing in a completely different way, recapitulating skin embryonic development in adults while striving to regenerate rather than repair skin. Skin organogenesis will be induced by key elements taken from the extracellular matrix of foetal skin and the skin of species that exhibit no scarring in the regeneration process and by employing (stem) cells from relevant cellular origins. The project aims to create a new generation of entrepreneurial, multidisciplinary scientists with intersectoral training and excellent career prospects in either academia, industry or government.
