The Transregional Collaborative Research Center (SFB/TRR) 225 “From the fundamentals of biofabrication towards functional tissue models” has reason to celebrate: The German Research Foundation (DFG) has extended the research program for another four years with financial support. The extension enables researchers to advance the work on biofabricated materials and their clinical application. The focus is on the development of innovative technologies that will revolutionize the use of implants in medicine. The program aims to bridge the gap between basic research and clinical application and promote collaboration between scientists, clinicians, and industry partners. More than 80 researchers are working on the project to develop the biofabricated implants of the future.
The decision of the DFG recognizes the outstanding research that the SFB/TRR 225 has achieved in the first funding period. Thus, based on the biofabrication expertise available at the sites, a sustainable competence center with an internationally leading role could be established via this Collaborative Research Center.
