Dr. Tresco's group is developing several biomaterial technologies for the reconstruction, replacement, and repair of damaged CNS tissues, including specialized devices for cell transplantation and biomaterials for targeting nerve outgrowth. A central theme in our work involves understanding the brain tissue response to implants that vary in their physical and chemical properties. In addition, we recently began developing biomaterials and force generating bioreactors capable of simulating the microenvironment of the vocal fold tissue. Please review our publications and our Keck Center for Tissue Engineering website to learn more about our work.
