Musculoskeletal research at NFB involves devising strategies to regenerate the intervertebral disc and bone.

Neural Regeneration

Neural regeneration research at NFB involves investigations into the mechanisms of repair of peripheral nerve and spinal cord and the development of functionalized scaffolds to aid this repair.

Soft Tissue Repair

Research in soft tissue repair at NFB focuses on biomaterials for reconstructive surgery and chronic wound healing as well as investigating methods to treat the wounds in Recessive Dystrophic Epidermolysis Bullosa.

Cardiovascular Regeneration

At NFB we are developing the next generation of cardiac patches and grafts with the main focus being on the use of functionalized scaffolds to regenerate infarcted myocardium and alleviating the effects of ischemia in peripheral vascular disease.
