The Tissue Engineering group, founded in 2006, is one of four research groups at the Department of Clinical Dentistry. The group, led by Prof. Kamal Mustafa, aims to address the shortage of tissues available for repair & regeneration. It includes a multidisciplinary team of scientists, clinicians & bioengineers working in close collaboration with national & international partners. Currently, we are developing functional engineered bone-tissue constructs, with combinations of cells, growth factors & the appropriate biomaterial scaffolds. The scope of our work includes all aspects of pre-clinical & clinical biomedical research.  Read more
