Cell Therapy and Tissue Engineering (TERCIT)

General objective:

Research and development of new therapies and technologies in the field of cell therapy, tissue engineering and regenerative medicine and its translation into clinical practice.

Research areas:

  • Preparation and characterization of stem cells (hematopoietic and mesenchymal umbilical cord) in cleanroom (GMP) for use in cell therapy.
  • Characterization of the molecular mechanisms of bone regeneration and development of new biomaterials used to restore the function of defective skeletal structures.
  • Characterization and development of demineralized bone matrix preparations of human bone suitable for clinical use.
  • Study and development of new techniques for the study, preservation and processing of eye tissue.
  • New product development from human milk and the study of immune and trophic factors.
