Materials for Health

The Materials for Health theme brings together a critical mass of leading researchers in the areas of tissue engineering, regenerative medicine, drug delivery and immunology. We develop innovative biomaterials and technologies to promote regeneration of damaged or diseased tissues and deliver therapies targeting specific, unmet, clinical needs.

The theme spans engineering, materials science, pharmaceutics, immunology, stem cell biology and clinical medicine to significantly enhance the next generation of patient care. We perform research into biomaterials to direct immune responses, develop bioinks for 3D Bioprinting, electroconductive biomaterials to promote enhanced cardiac and nerve repair and biomaterials for delivery of nucleic acid based nanomedicines.

Research in AMBER explores applications in regenerative medicine combining innovative scaffold systems with therapeutics to address important problems. The work spans 3D printing of next-generation scaffolds for orthopaedic repair, to advanced systems for nanomedicine delivery and novel electroconductive systems to address infarcted heart muscle and restore functionality to damaged nerves.
