The Tissue Engineering Research Group (TERG) is focussed on the development of next-generation implants by combining nanotechnology and tissue engineering methods, with a particular focus on living, cardiovascular devices for the treatment of both paediatric and adult populations.
The TERG is currently based in the UCD Health Sciences Centre and focusses on the application of tissue engineering and regenerative medicine principles to the improved treatment of disease. The two major group research themes are as follows:
- Vascular graft / heart valve prostheses
- In vitro models of disease
