The next generation of bioreactors are being built at the School of Science & Engineering

A group of students, PhDs and interns at the School of Science & Engineering are building the next generation of bioreactors to promote the artificial growth of musculoskeletal tissues. A bioreactor is a manufactured or engineered device used to transform undifferentiated cells into functionalized tissues such as muscles and tendons  - the gym in a petri dish. Tissues and fibers produced are used in preliminary studie...
