The Tissue Engineering and Regenerative Medicine (TERM) lab, led by Assoc. Prof. Nguyen Thi Hiep, was founded in 2014 as one of the core orientations in School of Biomedical Engineering, International University, VNU-HCMC. It is our mission to transform basic science and engineering related to biomaterials, cells and biomolecules into practical applications in medicine and public heath.
We are primarily interested in investigating high molecular weight proteins (collagen, gelatin, growth factors, etc.), natural polysaccharides (chitosan, alginate, xanthan gum, etc.), synthetic polymers (polyvinyl alcohol, polycaprolactone, etc.), hydroxyapatite/ biphasic calcium phosphate sources and the combinations thereof for the purpose of regenerating soft and hard tissues as well as wound healing promotion. In addition to synthesis and physiochemical characterization, our lab conducted in vitro and in vivo studies to evaluate biological characteristics of the fabricated biomaterials or engineered tissues.
