The Biomaterials Lab is proud to announce that the NIH has granted a $6.25 million award to support the establishment of the Center for Engineering Complex Tissues (CECT). Researchers from Rice University, Wake Forest University, and the University of Maryland are leading the center to support the development of new biomedical technology at the intersection of biomaterials, tissue engineering, and 3-D printing. CECT will provide a platform for collaboration between these universities as they seek to improve regenerative medicine techniques and technologies. The Biomaterials Lab will be a proud member of the CECT with the goal of supporting biomaterials education, research, and entrepreneurship. Serving as a multi-user facility and training center, the Lab seeks to improve collaborations between Rice and other institutions, including those established under the CECT, while also supporting new tech ventures at the university and within the Houston community. The availability of unique resources and equipment will help support these endeavors.
