Resource Center (TERC)
The P41 Tissue
Engineering Resource Center was initiated in August of 2004 with funding
provided by the NIH (supported through the NIBIB). The core themes
in the Center continue to focus on functional tissue engineering
achieved through the integration of the key elements in the field,
via a systems approach; cells, scaffolds and bioreactors to control
the environment. The Center is run at Tufts University in Medford,
Massachusetts and is directed by Professor David Kaplan. The Center
also includes a partner institution, Columbia University in New York
City, where the Associate Director for TERC, Professor Gordana
Vunjak-Novakovic, runs additional aspects of the Center. There are
two main cores in TERC, a biomaterials core at Tufts University and
a bioreactor core at Columbia University. Stem cells and related
cell biology needs are integrated into these two core efforts to
optimize functional tissue outcomes.
