Dr. Jeroen JJP van den Beucken, Dept. Biomaterials has received funding from the ZonMW program Translational Adult Stem Cell (TAS) Research, subprogram International Breakthrough projects, for pre-clinical research on intra-operative mesenchymal stem cell-monocyte constructs for bone regeneration.
The project will focus on the contribution and efficacy of combining monocytes with adipose tissue-derived mesenchymal stem cells for the generation of cell-based constructs for bone regenerative applications.
The research will be performed in collaboration with the REPAIR-lab at the Johannes Gutenburg University, led by prof dr C James Kirkpatrick and dr Ronald Unger.
