Currently, there is no cure for organ failure, but bioartificial constructs may help address this global problem. Decellularization provides a promising platform to generate transplantable tissues and organs. This process removes the cells from native structures to leave behind the intact extracellular matrix, which can be used as a scaffold to create new grafts. This technology has garnered much attention within the past decade, as decellularized scaffolds have been generated from equines, bovines, and humans. However, there is a dire need to improve the way we build a sustainable vasculature for transplantation. Our project aims to address this issue by a multidisciplinary approach that combines tissue engineering, regenerative medicine, and artificial intelligence.
The student will gain experience in state-of-the-art approaches related to Cell and Tissue Engineering, Whole Organ Bioengineering, and Machine Learning approaches.
We seek a dedicated student willing to work in a multi-discipline team and support our project’s data analysis.
