Optimising vascularisation of tissue engineering chambers for construction of robust tissues

Grant number: DP0880515 | Funding period: 2008 - 2010



We have produced a device that has commercial application in several fields of basic science, biotechnology and bioengineering. When its full potential is achieved, our innovative organ chamber will strengthen Australia's standing in the biotechnology field and enrich specific applications. The knowledge gained from understanding the growth of blood vessels will benefit several fields including chemical bioengineering, tissue engineering and repair, polymer chemistry, therapeutics in many areas (like cancer, heart disease, diabetes), hormone manufacture for agricultural, veterinary and medical purposes and cosmetics manufacture. The project will train several post-doctoral fellows and PhD st..
