The Center for Engineering Complex Tissues (CECT) has officially launched its new website!
The CECT is a NIBIB/NIH Biomedical Technology Research Center (BTRC) aiming to grow the 3D printing and bioprinting community. It is a joint effort between TEBL at the University of Maryland with the Biomaterials Lab at Rice University and Wake Forest Institute for Regenerative Medicine (WFIRM) at Wake Forest University. The Center is headed by TEBL PI Dr. John Fisher and features projects building on our previous work developing a tubular perfusion system (TPS) bioreactor that enables human mesenchymal stem cell expansion, their osteoblastic differentiation, and subsequent formation of boney tissue.
More information about the Center and its new website can be found here.
