Promote technological development, innovation and quality research.

The Project "Innovative and effective Bioengineered Corneal Substitutes based on combined Cell Therapy and Nanotechnologies. NANOGROW"; RTC-2017-6696-1 has been funded by the Ministry of Science, Innovation and Universities and co-financed by the European Union.
Duration: 2018/2020

This project seeks to optimize the industrial manufacture of Cell Therapy products to obtain living organs in a short period of time to serve as effective tissue substitutes for their application in Regenerative Medicine.

Functionalization of the bioengineered cornea with growth factor-loaded nanoparticles, which promote cell proliferation, allow shortening manufacturing times, increasing the effectiveness and tolerance of the graft.

In order to manufacture these optimized tissue substitutes, modular sterile rooms will be designed complying GMP conditions, close to the reference hospitals so that manufacturing times can be reduced and sample contamination avoided.
