Biodesign Institute announces new center devoted to advancing revolutionary biomaterials
Biomaterials are expected to become the foundation for transformative advances in health care. Kaushal Rege, a professor in the School for Engineering of Matter, Transport, and Energy, part of the Fulton Schools, is poised to contribute to that progress through his recent appointment with ASU’s Biodesign Institute. Rege will now direct the new Center for Biomaterials Innovation and Translation. The center will establish collaborations between researchers in materials science, engineering, biology, drug delivery, regenerative medicine, tissue engineering and regulatory affairs to develop new materials that are safe, effective and compatible with the human body and meet the needs of a variety of medical applications.
