The European Union has provisionally awarded a grant of more than 3 million euro to the SkinTERM project “Skin Tissue Engineering and Regenerative Medicine: From skin repair to regeneration”. SkinTERM is coordinated by the Radboudumc with Willeke Daamen as coordinator and Toin van Kuppevelt as vice coordinator (both RIMLS, theme Reconstructive and regenerative medicine, Dept. of Biochemistry).
The SkinTERM project is a collaboration of 5 companies and 6 universities from seven different countries that will guide 12 PhD candidates in order to create a new generation of entrepreneurial, multidisciplinary and intersectorially trained scientists. The key goal of the project is the conversion of skin repair into skin regeneration, the mode by which skin heals perfectly without scars.
