RESBIO is a NIH-funded national biomedical technology resource that fosters multi-disciplinary investigations and multi-institutional collaborations that integrate chemical, biological and materials research to advance the discovery of polymeric biomaterials for regenerative medicine, the delivery of biological agents, and the development of bioactive scaffolds and medical implants. The overarching aim is to supply biomedical researchers with the biomaterials, bioactive scaffolds, medical implants, and tools for studying cell-biomaterial interactions that will enable new kinds of medical therapies.
RESBIO's goals in Phase 3 (2013 – 2018):
1.Develop biomaterials and bioactive scaffolds based on combinatorial and computational approaches to enhance cellular activity.
2. Develop deeper understanding and the necessary tools to investigate the signaling mechanisms that guide cellular response to specific scaffold properties.
3. Disseminate new methods and technologies developed by RESBIO to the biomedical community and initiate an industrial network for innovation.
RESBIO is a Biomedical Technology Resource funded by the National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering.
