About us
The Tissue Engineering and Applied Cell Sciences was established in 2009 at the Iran University of Medical Sciences and supports a multidisciplinary and highly skilled group which works at the interface of biotechnology, biology, biomedical engineering, stem cells and materials sciences. Major research areas at our group include, among others, new materials development, drug delivery, tissue engineering, regenerative medicine, nanomedicine, and stem cell isolation, differentiation and clinical trial studies. The group belongs to the Islamic Republic of Iran Government.
The goal of the This department is to develop novel biomaterials (hydrogels, scaffolds, membranes, nano/microparticles) based on natural and synthetic materials for applications in drug delivery and tissue engineering of eye, lung, bone, cartilage and skin. This is accomplished by developing several isolation/purification tools and processing methods, allowing the fabrication of integrated biomaterials. On the other hand, stem cell research is devoted to the differentiation of mesenchymal stem cells from different sources (adipose tissue, bone marrow, amniotic membrane and fluid, umbilical cord blood, Warthon’s Jelly) and origins (human, goat, rat) towards the lineages of interest (bone, cartilage, skin) either using conventional methodologies or combined scaffolds/ biological signals. This group is also focusing on development of novel antibacterial agents and tissue engineering scaffolds. Researches at Tissue Engineering and Applied Cell Sciences are supported by multiple grants from XXXXXXXX. This research group has been in the last few years one of the most active groups in IRAN on attracting highly competitive large grants for research, educational programs, and supporting infrastructure. This strategy has been positioning the Group as a continuously growing and world-respected center on Biomaterials, Tissue Engineering and Regenerative Medicine research The Tissue Engineering and Applied Cell Sciences has been built based on an interdisciplinary research approach where collaboration and cooperation are hallmarks of its culture. Collaborative long-term partnerships have been developed with universities in Europe, Asia, and America that have been providing opportunities for student and postdoctoral exchange programs and joint research projects.
