The Tissue Engineering & Biomaterials Testing Research Node is equipped with a microfluidics 3D bioprinter and mechanical testers, which facilitate the development of artificial 3D biological tissue models and the biomechanical testing of different biomaterials and biomedical samples. This facility allows us to:
- perform rheological analysis of biomaterials
- fabricate artificial tissues and scaffolding using a diverse combination of materials
- acquire spatial and temporal information about cellular mechanisms and tissue remodelling processes
Several research labs are affiliated with the TEAM Hub Tissue Engineering & Biomaterials Testing Node as users, collaborators, and/or technology developers. The following groups are directly related to the TEAM Hub’s 3D bioprinting, tissue microstructure assessment, and biomaterials characterization:
Tissue engineering and biomaterials are two very interconnected areas. Developing scaffolds and biologically active molecules that can serve as functional tissues requires precision. The TEAM Hub has state-of-the-art equipment that allows us to assemble functional constructs that resemble damaged tissues and/or whole organs.
Are you curious about the fundamental mechanisms of different diseases or passionate about applying data analysis to bioscience? Are you an engineer eager to become involved with tissue engineering or a chemist interested in biomaterials? Do you want to explore how light interacts with matter, discover how it can uncover the fundamental mechanisms behind cellular responses, and thereby improve our understanding of tissue structures? Would you like to work in an exciting, fast-paced, ambitious, and friendly research environment?
If you are interested in working with us, please view our current openings or contact one of the TEAM Hub core members to inquire about potential unlisted opportunities.
Are you interested in testing the waters of academic research? Would you like to gain invaluable experience working on interesting projects with a dynamic group? The TEAM Hub offers opportunities for undergraduate students from different programs. See the following openings for details.
