Chaozong Liu

Professor Chaozong Liu is leading a Rosetrees Trust-funded project, with Dr. Maryam Tamaddon, to investigate a tissue engineering approach for the treatment of cartilage damage, as a result of repetitive injuries or osteoarthritis.

The team have already developed a novel ex vivo bone plug model for evaluating scaffold technology in order to speed up translation of this technology into clinical practice. They have also demonstrated improved mechanical and biological parameters in various model systems, both in vitro and in vivo. Read the article here.
