Mesenchymal Stem Cells Scaffold-free Cellular Fibers Regeneration

Hybrid living bioengineered hierarchical constructs with self-oxygenating capability (O2CELLS)

PartnerFundação para a Ciência e a Tecnologia
Tissue engineering (TE) has emerged as an alternative solution aiming to provide a surplus of temporary structural supports at the defect site until native tissue is endogenously regenerated and normal function is restored. Although progresses have been made in the last 20 years, it is not yet possible to address all the complexity and (multi)fu...

Innovative tools to treat and model complex cancer environments (TheraTools)

PartnerEuropean Comission
Funded by the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions programme, the TheraTools project will create a multidisciplinary research and training network to focus on the technological development of scientific tools to study malignant tumours localised beyond a biological barrier, as in the case of brain tumours. The TheraTools consortium will provide high-q...

Merging Sustainable and Digital Chemical Technologies for The Development of Greener-Bydesign Pharmaceuticals (SusPharma)

PartnerEuropean Comission
Safe- and green-by-design are pre-market design approaches whereby the objectives of minimizing the use of hazardous chemicals, reducing greenhouse gas emissions, and fostering the reuse and recycling of materials in a circular economy are built into product design. SUSPHARMA fits the European need for sustainable development in modern ...

Metabolite-activated 3D stem cell differentiation into bone (BetterBone)

PartnerFundação para a Ciência e a Tecnologia
Strategies involving mesenchymal stem cell (MSC) osteogenic differentiation have emerged as promising tools in regenerative medicine. These work by either promoting in situ regeneration, or through newly-fabricated tissue grafts, potentially overcoming clinical complications related to more conventional therapies. However, bioengineered ...
