SkinTERM stands for Skin Tissue Engineering and Regenerative Medicine and aims to convert the normal mode of skin repair into skin regeneration by delivering excellently and multidisciplinary trained scientists able to take this research area to the next level. Today’s standard treatment of skin burns and large trauma is transplantation of autologous split-thickness skin. This carries a number of serious drawbacks, including pain, mobility-limiting contractures and disfiguring scars. SkinTERM aims to address wound healing in a completely different way, recapitulating regeneration rather than repair. Skin organogenesis will be induced by key elements taken from the extracellular matrix of foetal skin and the skin of species that exhibit no scarring in the regeneration process, and by employing (stem) cells from relevant cellular origins.
The project aims to create a new generation of entrepreneurial, multidisciplinary and intersectorially trained scientists with excellent career prospects in either academia, industry or government. Early stage researchers trained in this programme will be able to drive this research area further towards clinical translation in Europe.
