Tissue Engineering and Biomaterials


The ultimate goal of biomaterials and tissue engineering is to control and replicate, respectively, cells and tissues with the same level of precision and function as is found in nature to provide greater translational therapies. Here at UVA, we strive to push the boundaries of our respective fields through the development, optimization, and implementation of new and exciting chemistry, biology, and advanced biomanufacturing technology.
