CANTER — Center for Applied Tissue Engineering and Regenerative Medicine
CANTER was founded in 2011 as a collaborative project of Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität (LMU), Munich University of Applied Sciences and Technische Universität München (TUM). The goal of CANTER is to develop technologies that will make it possible in the future to produce tissue replacement materials in the laboratory that are individually tailored to the needs of the patients concerned. In addition to a fundamental understanding of the structure-function relationships in healthy and pathological tissue, this will require cell and molecular biology techniques, rapid prototyping and 3D printing techniques, as well as suitable bioreactors for the cultivation of three-dimensional tissue. CANTER relies on an established network based on long-standing collaborations between engineers, physicians, and natural scientists from the Munich University of Applied Sciences and from the LMU and TUM hospitals with joint research projects, courses, and jointly supervised theses and doctoral dissertations.
CANTER also cooperates with companies in the fields of microsystems technology, sensor technology, biotechnology/nanobiotechnology, materials technology/biomaterials, engineering, and medical technology.
