The group of Tissue Engineering started in May 2017 and is composed of a team multidisciplinary with international experience, scientific contributions and relevant research projects. The goal main group is to understand the influence of mechanics on development and tissue regeneration processes. Our approach is based on the development and characterization of polymeric scaffolds with customized mechanical and morphological properties. We combine simulation and modeling to better understand the effect of geometry and mechanical stimulus on tissue construction and cellular response.

We use different manufacturing technologies, such as 3D bioprinting, electrospinning, etc., and characterization techniques such as mechanical testing, image acquisition, etc., which allow us to perform an exhaustive analysis of the designed scaffolds. Different approaches can be implemented to modulate the cell behavior of agreement with specific mechanical signals. We are particularly interested in the generation of in vitro 3D tissues for disease modeling and drug modeling essay .

We are currently working on the development of 3D human skeletal muscle tissue constructs in vitro to understand their development process and physiological behaviour. The muscle development is especially relevant in the context of degenerative diseases, for example in muscular dystrophies or neuropathies. We are also working on the development of a model trabecular meshwork of the human eye to mimic ocular pathophysiology in glaucoma disease. This novel platform could be used to develop new therapeutic approaches.

The group of Tissue Engineering seeks to generate new interdisciplinary knowledge in this field, working closely partnership with other institutions, centers research, hospitals and universities around the world. We also hope to contribute to our society by training Degree and graduate students to develop important and transformative work in their future.

We are always open to new collaborations and highly motivated and talented researchers.
