YOU ARE EXPLORING

The Indiana Center for Regenerative Medicine and Engineering is a multidisciplinary research center focused on the development of novel technologies that regenerate cells and tissues affected by age, disease, damage or congenital effects, ultimately leading to wound care and healing for patients in Indiana and beyond. Located on the Indiana University School of Medicine – Indianapolis campus, the center is comprised of more than 30 scientists and staff working to impact human health.

Interdisciplinary Collaboration

Regenerative medicine solutions require expertise across disciplines to transform an idea from the bench to the bedside. Through this center, basic scientists, bioengineers and surgeons collaborate to develop new treatments for disease. The center’s team of investigators are located throughout the state of Indiana, converging towards excellence in regenerative medicine and engineering, in partnership with industry and government agencies.

Together, center investigators are working together to address four core pillars:

  • Cell-based therapies
  • Tissue engineering
  • Military health
  • Wound healing

The power of healing through innovative technology

Tissue Nanotransfection

Tissue Nanotransfection

Investigators at the Center have developed a non-invasive, nanochip device that uses tissue nanotransfection technology to reprogram one type of tissue into another with a simple touch and electric spark that is harmless to the body.
What is regenerative medicine?

What is regenerative medicine?

Regenerative medicine is the process of creating living, functional tissues to repair or replace tissue or organ function loss due to age, disease, damage or congenital effects.
