Scientific Abstract

The overall aim of the project is the fundamental research and development of cell-based tissue structures which will then result in the complete regeneration of damaged tissues, for example, the regeneration of bones with integrated vessels. It should be possible to reproduce the micro-anatomical structure of bones and blood vessels based on the combination of new manufacturing processes for three dimensional frameworks in conjunction with bioactive materials, specific growth factors and patients' own cells. It is hoped that these processes will pave the way for new intelligent therapies in the future via the application of customised biomaterials and the production of complete or component tissue in the laboratory or directly in the operating theatre on or in the patients. This combination would cut out the complicated and protracted cultivation of tissues.
