Science Mimicking Life Research Center
The clinical goal of this research centre is to develop novel technologies for personalised medicine in, for example, the development of new stem cell-based therapies, tissue engineered human spare parts, and medical implants. The aim of organ-on-chip modelling is to develop next generation in vitro models that mimic human organ systems by combining technologies and stem cell-derived human cells. The engineering goals are to develop materials, methods, devices, techniques, and computational models with which to tackle chosen biological and clinical problems.
The centre is led by Docent Susanna Narkilahti and Professor Minna Kellomäki.
