The Australia-China Centre for Tissue Engineering and Regenerative Medicine (ACCTERM) is an international network that aims to generate interdisciplinary awareness and promote and expand scientific cooperation and communication between China and Australia.
Since the centre’s inception in 2013, we have experienced significant growth and successes. Our collaborating partners include some of Australia and China’s leading research universities. ACCTERM currently has six Chinese partners: Wuhan University, Sun Yat-sen University, Shanghai Institute of Ceramics, Chinese Academy of Science, East China University of Science and Technology, Nanjing University and Zhejiang University. The centre also works closely with researchers at QUT and Griffith University, our Australian based partners.
ACCTERM is a hub for international research collaborations in the field of tissue engineering, regenerative medicine, 3D printing, nanotechnology and bioceramics. Our centre continues to represent a strategic opportunity to connect with international research networks and capture a share of the global regenerative therapies market. The ongoing research alliances established strive to strengthen and grow the biotechnology and medical technology industries in both Australia and China.
The centre currently employs 5 full-time researchers, 4 visiting scholars, and 3 joint PhD students, has attracted almost $9 million in research funding and has published over 50 journal publications.
