Over the past five years, few public research universities have risen in stature as quickly for both academic excellence and the creation of life-changing technological and medical innovation than the University of Utah.
Associate Dean, College of Engineering, Professor, Department of Bioengineering
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.
