The EPSRC Centre for Innovative Manufacturing in Regenerative Medicine was created in 2010 and is led from Loughborough University in the UK, in partnership with complementary groups at Keele University and The University of Nottingham. Each university brings its own expertise to create a unique partnership combining leadership in regulated manufacturing, tissue engineering and clinical science.
The EPSRC Centre has an engagement programme bringing together the UK regenerative medicine manufacturing community to create a distributed centre of excellence. The EPSRC Centre has a considerable number of collaborators, just some of which are listed here. Testimonials from our collaborators can be found here. Examples of current projects can be found here.
In developing novel research in regenerative medicine manufacturing, the EPSRC Centre maintains wide linkages worldwide with research and commercial organisations. Active collaborations are ongoing with organisations based in the USA, Canada, Japan, China, India, Singapore, New Zealand, France, Spain and Belgium.
The EPSRC Centre is open to new collaborations. Potential collaborators are invited to contact us to request introductions to appropriate academic, clinical or commercial contacts in the UK. Please send as much information as possible so that we can help to identify the right person/organisation quickly.
What is an EPSRC Centre for Innovative Manufacturing?
The sixteen EPSRC Centres for Innovative Manufacturing are part of a novel approach to maximise the impact of innovative research for the UK, supporting existing industries, and more importantly, opening up new industries and markets in growth areas. Each centre receives five years of funding to retain staff, develop collaborations and carry out feasibility studies. Centres vary from medical devices and regenerative medicine to photonics and liquid metal engineering.
The EPSRC Centre for Innovative Manufacturing in Regenerative Medicine is closely aligned with:
- The EPSRC-MRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Regenerative Medicine (external site)
- The E-TERM Landscape Fellowships Programme
About our funder, the EPSRC
The Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) is the main UK government agency for funding research and training in engineering and the physical sciences, investing more than £800million a year in a broad range of subjects – from mathematics to materials science, and from information technology to structural engineering.
