is a partnership between Eindhoven University of Technology, Maastricht University and Utrecht University, University Medical Center Utrecht, and the Hubrecht Institute. This consortium was brought together to advance tissue and organ regeneration with the use of instructive biomaterials. The MDR Research Center was awarded a 18.8 M€ grant in May 2017 by the ministry of education, culture and science of The Netherlands within the framework of the Gravitation program
With this 10-year research program the interdisciplinary MDR consortium aims to progress the development and use of new, intelligent materials that stimulate the regeneration of damaged or diseased tissues and organs in the human body. The research program hinges on three research flagships, which concentrate at regeneration at the cellular level, the tissue level, and the level op organ functions. To strengthen our research center, we are looking forward to meeting highly motivated and talented candidates that like to contribute to this interesting, yet complex multidisciplinary area of Materials-Driven Regeneration.
