Summary The goal of our research is to prevent the onset of Osteoarthritis by regenerating cartilage using a unique 3D printing technology, that requires multiple iteration steps to select the optimal combination of a biocompatible material and stem cells, to efficiently regenerate cartilage.
The goal of our research is to prevent the onset of Osteoarthritis by regenerating cartilage using a unique 3D printing technology, that requires multiple iteration steps to select the optimal combination of a biocompatible material and stem cells, to efficiently regenerate cartilage.
The aim of this project is to generate a novel bio-physical tool to simultaneously monitor the biodegradation of a hydrogel material and the production of Collagen II matrix from stem cells. The tool will be used to discover novel materials for cartilage repair strategies.
This project will train the candidate in stem cells culturing, chondrogenic differentiation, DNA amplification and transfection, CRISPR/CAS9 technology, molecular and immunostaining analysis and fluorescence microscopy, 3D bioprinting, material science.
This project will provide an opportunity for a Master/PhD student to take part in a discovery project embedded in a multidisciplinary team based at the 3DBioFab@ACMD, St Vincent’s Hospital, Melbourne.
