Cell Sheet Tissue Engineering Center @ The University of Utah
The Cell Sheet Tissue Engineering Center at the University of Utah (CSTEC@Utah) was established in 2015 by Dr. Teruo Okano and Dr. David Grainger. This center represents the ongoing collaboration between the University of Utah in Salt Lake City, Utah and the Tokyo Women's Medical University and Waseda University Joint Institute of Advanced Biomedical Sciences (TWIns) in Tokyo, Japan.
The goal of this collaborative center is to develop new allogeneic off-the-shelf cell sheet regenerative approaches in Utah for first-in-human trials and drive commercialization as a Center of Excellence to address large unmet medical needs in regenerative medicine.
