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 reduce the number of amputations in the state of Indiana and deliver critically acclaimed science.

Interdisciplinary Collaboration

Regenerative medicine solutions require expertise across disciplines in medicine and engineering to develop transformative solutions in science and health care. With support from the state of Indiana, philanthropic donors, foundations and the federal government, the center partners with private industry 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, this team is working 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.
