Ongoing Projects & Funding

Several research projects within the field of bone tissue engineering are currently being undertaken by the group.These projects involve both in vitro and in vivo aspects of pre-clinical research.Additionally,clinical trials to test the efficacy of autologous stem cells for jaw bone regeneration are ongoing.

Funding History

Throughout the years our group has consistently received funding from national and international agencies to partner and coordinate large research projects.
