Regenerating the oral mucosa in patients with MRONJ using synthetic poly(glycerol sebacate) scaffolds and uncultured adipose cells

Lead Research Organisation: University of Sheffield
Department Name: Materials Science and Engineering


The aim of this project is to develop a novel tissue engineered device which is able to restore the protective soft tissue barrier in patients with MRONJ. To do this we will use our previously developed in vitro model of soft tissue toxicity in MRONJ to design and test a device which incorporates uncultured cells from adipose tissues with a porous, biodegradable polymer scaffold to promote gingival regeneration and closure.
