Synthesis of functionalised, biosorbable biopolymers with novel architecture for soft tissue engineering

Grant number: DP0344037


This project will provide a timely and unique opportunity to develop biodegradable and biocompatible polymeric scaffold materials for use in soft tissue engineering. The project forms an essential part of the strategy set in the University of Melbourne to develop a system for cell transplantation and organ recreation. The success of the project will provide a significant contribution to the solution of organ shortage in organ transplantation both in Australia and the world. Through the technology developed in this project, a significant contribution in biomaterial science and manufacture in Australia will be achieved.
