NIH grant funds Center for Engineering Complex Tissues at RiceNIH grant funds Center for Engineering Complex Tissues at Rice
Biomedical technology resource will build a community around biomaterials
Bioengineers at Rice University, the University of Maryland and Wake Forest University have received a $6.25 million National Institutes of Health (NIH) grant to establish the Center for Engineering Complex Tissues (CECT). The center, which will start April 15, will help move tissue engineering from the lab to the clinic by both developing new technologies and serving as a collaborative hub for the fast-growing community of surgeons, biomaterials experts and engineers focused on regenerative medicine.  (April 10, 2017)
