Bone tissue engineering: Creating bone tissue for use in craniofacial area by comparing cells from different origins and optimising their processing

  • Cell biology
  • Cell Therapy
  • Bone and cartilage regeneration
  • Clinical translation

This PhD-project focuses on the culture of craniofacial human periosteum-derived cells and and exploring the differences between craniofacial-derived cells and tibial-derived cells. Furthermore, we will optimise culturing strategies by selecting the best combination and dosis of growth factors and select the best scaffolds to use. The obtained tissue-engineered constructs will be tested in an orthotopic rat model for craniofacial bone defects, which will be developed and validated.
