Intelligent scaffolds for tissue engineering of bone, skin and cartilage

Objective

With our ageing and more active population, there is an increasing demand for materials that can potentially replace, repair or even regenerate injured bone, cartilage and skin tissues. Present surgical or grafting procedures are only partly successful in restoring all functions of the damaged tissues. This RTD project is aimed at developing functional biomaterials and targeted at providing advanced nano-tailored materials via surface technologies and nanostructured particles.

Objectives:
To produce innovative scaffold materials with characteristics tailored to regenerate bone, cartilage and skin tissues upon implantation. To produce Intelligent scaffolds which:
- can initially fill the tissue defect, provide equivalent function as the equivalent tissue,
- support the natural tissue regeneration process in viva by attracting and concentrating cell-adhesion factors, molecular triggers and progenitor cells,
- ultimately degrade upon tissue differentiation and growth.
