Advanced Biomaterials for Regenerative Medicine

Objective

The main aim of this project is to establish a long-lasting collaboration and create a network of European and Chinese research centres of excellence and R&D active SMEs in the area of biomedical materials. This aim will be achieved by undertaking joint research activities in creating advanced composite ‘hard’ and ‘soft’ biomedical materials for regenerative medicine via collaboration facilitated by individual mobility of researchers between Europe and China. The main research objectives of the proposal are: - To synthesise novel composite carbon/carbon, carbon/polymer, polymer/polymer, carbon/ ceramic nanostructured biomaterials for advanced applications in regenerative medicine; - To characterise mechanical, physical and chemical properties of the synthesised biomaterials; - To produce bioactive materials which have bispecific surface functional groups, bioactive coating, carry bioactive agents, or carry induced pluripotent stem cells; - To assess their biological performance in clinically reflective tests; - To develop technologies for manufacturing novel biomaterials; - To gain fundamental knowledge of the mechanism of biomaterial – biological media interactions; - To develop novel biosensor devices for monitoring tissue engineered constructs; - To establish routes to market for the materials developed in this project.
