Research at BIREL focuses on the design and fabrication of nanotechnology-based functional biomaterials as well as controlled release systems to be utilized for orthopedic tissue-tissue interface regeneration. Regenerative engineering laden by stem/progenitor cell recruitment and utilization of Extracellular Matrix scaffolds for tissue/organ regeneration are also investigated at BIREL.
Mission of BIREL: Currently available clinical procedures utilized to repair the orthopedic soft-to-hard tissue injuries are unable to biologically integrate grafts to the host tissues especially at the interfaces where multiple tissues are connected in a graded fashion. We aim to develop natural/synthetic grafts to address the unmet need for tissue regeneration through instructing cells.
