Subject groups/Research projects

Comparative Pathobiology:

Novel tissue engineering approaches for long bone critical size defect healing 

Research Interests

The ultimate goal of my research is to develop novel tissue engineering approaches for bone critical size defects healing, using mesenchymal stem cells  (MSCs) and 3D printed biodegradable scaffolds in combination with different chemical and mechanical stimuli to achieve the best possible niche for cellular proliferation and osteogenic differentiation. 

I will be evaluating my isolated MSCs population as well as my materials/cell composite in vitro and in vivo using sheep as an animal model.
