Regenerative Medicine

Cancer Decoy Decoy could capture malignant cells and warn of relapse.

Cancer decoy

Researchers in BME and the U-M Comprehensive Cancer Center teamed up to develop a sponge-like device could capture malignant cells and provide early warning before a relapse.

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.

Leaders and best

Our faculty include internationally recognized experts in biomaterials, tissue engineering and regenerative medicine. They work to understand and promote the regeneration of specific tissues, including blood vessels, cartilage, bone, nerve, pancreas and reproductive organs. Our students have opportunities to participate in NIH-sponsored training grants and programs in several fields, including:
