Tissue engineering and regenerative medicine could revolutionise the treatment of a wide number of diseases and injuries, including those for which there is no current cure. To highlight this, the government has made research in this area one of its top priorities.
However, in order to succeed multiple challenges need to be overcome in order to translate promising benchtop research into clinical and commercial areas. ETERM Fellowships aim to apply engineering solutions in order to address these major translational challenges through multidisciplinary science.
What is ETERM?
The ETERM Fellowship Scheme is a joint endeavour between Loughborough, Nottingham, Keele, Sheffield, Leeds and York Univeristies funded by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council.
12 Fellows make up the cohort conducting multidiciplinary research across the Tissue Engineering and Regenerative Medicine Landscape.
The fellows' research is highly aligned with the successful Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) in Regenerative Medicine whose goal is to equip the next-generation of researchers with the tools and skills needed to translate cell based therapies from bench to bedside.
