Welcome to the TELab - Tissue Engineering Laboratory - Web site

At the TELab we are involved in research and development of new therapeutic solutions in the field of Tissue Engineering (TE). TE is a branch of Biomedical Engineering that combines cells, materials and growth factors using the methods of engineering and the knowledge of the life and exact sciences for the development of biological substitutes to improve or replace the function of damaged or missing organs or tissues.

The TELab is affiliated with the Soft and Biofunctional Materials Group (SBMG) of Cenimat / I3N (Centre for Materials Research / Institute for Nanostructures, Nanomodelling and Nanofabrication). We are located at room 240 of the Physics DepartmentFaculty of Science and Technology, Nova University of Lisbon.
