Our work centres on the exciting opportunities at the intersection of cell and gene therapies. We’re finding ways to regenerate damaged or dysfunctional tissue, repair cartilage defects, treat diabetic foot ulcers and fight cancer.
Our research focuses on developing effective therapies using three key technology streams:
We are optimising therapy solutions that use stem cell and primary cell populations to repair tissues such as skin, bone and cartilage.
We are developing 3D printing, additive manufacturing and hydrogel technologies to create scaffolds that support tissue repair, medical devices and high-resolution cultures designed to examine cell-to-cell interactions or screen drugs.
Cell and gene therapy
We are developing or applying gene editing technologies to increase the potency of cell therapies and coupling these technologies with recognised cell stem therapies.
