Tissue Engineering & Regenerative Medicine

Regenerative Medicine’s aim is to to replace, engineer, or regenerate human cells, tissues, and organs to restore or establish normal function. Michigan is unmatched in the broad reach of its research which includes the School of Medicine and the Colleges of Engineering and Pharmacy and as a result is a world leader in citations, grants received, and number of patents in this field.

  • Stem cell research
  • Development of artificial organs and tissues
  • Development of decoys

Our students have opportunities to participate in NIH-sponsored training grants and programs in several fields, including:

  • Organ replacement
  • Drug delivery
  • Injury rehabilitation

Breadth and Strength

Regenerative medicine leverages not only Michigan’s top Medical and Engineering schools, but also the university’s expertise in basic and biological sciences. No other school with this discipline can claim such across-the-board strength. Researchers across the university collaborate on regenerative medicine to form one of the strongest cohorts anywhere.
