The Tissue Engineering Unit is focused on the establishment of in vitro human cell lines for bio-engineering and tissue/organ design with therapeutic purposes.
Its main objectives are:
- The implementation and operation of a technological platform for the
development of protocols and/or products through in vitro growth and
culture of human cells with the aim of establishing different protocols of
clinic appliance for the treatment of degenerative conditions. (Cell therapy)
- Research and development of in vitro organs through bio-engineering, bio-
design and tissue engineering via the use of technological platforms in
culture and growth of human cells.
- Founding of a cell bank of mesenchymal stem cells (MSC) for donation,
with the purpose of conducting clinical essays through the implementations
and transplant of MSC.
- To strengthen the research and education system of the Autonomous
University of Nuevo León, founding new bio-medical research areas in the
field of Regenerative Medicine and Tissue Engineering.
