EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Tissue Engineering and Regenerative Medicine


Regenerative medicine has been identified by the government as one of “8 great technologies” vital to driving UK economic growth and our centre confirms Leeds’ place as a leader in the discipline.

Research projects already underway include creating biological scaffolds to repair tissues by regenerating a patient's own cells and developing practical stem cell-based therapies for musculoskeletal, cardiovascular and neural problems.

Our expertise is in the area of musculoskeletal and cardiovascular systems with our research focusing on three main areas - Joint Replacement, Tissue Re-engineering and Functional Spinal Interventions.

Multidisciplinary research projects will be available in a number of faculties and departments across the university including in the School of Mechanical Engineering, School of Biomedical Sciences, Medicine, Dentistry, Design and Chemistry.
