Developing new strategies in the fields of healthcare materials and tissue engineering to address some clinical issues.

Biomaterials & Bioengineering is the joint research unit UMR_S 1121
of Inserm and the University of Strasbourg

Our expertise is based on the design of new materials/coatings based on biological components, using approaches derived from chemistry, physical chemistry, biology and in vivo experimentations.

Our 4 main clinical challenges in the field of biomaterials are : 

  • the prevention of infections due to medical devices (implants, catheters, dressings, etc.) and the care of infected wounds (diabetic ulcers, etc.)
  • dental tissue engineering
  • development of larynx and tracheal prostheses
  • the design of implants to resolve diaphragmatic hernias, particularly in children.

To achieve this, we are building on 2 technological pillars :

  • biomimetic and natural materials 
  • bioprinting for 3D manufacturing.

ABOUT OUR LAB

The Biomaterials & Bioengineering laboratory was set up in Strasbourg in 1995 under the name « Biomaterials », under the joint supervision of Inserm and the University of Strasbourg.

Today, we are based at 2 sites in Strasbourg : the Strasbourg Biomedicine Research Center (CRBS) and the Faculty of Dental Surgery.

The Unit has a total staff of between 50 and 60, including 21 researchers and teacher-researchers, 5 engineers and 3 technicians, all Inserm, CNRS or Unistra personnel.

In addition, there are post-docs, PhD students, contract engineers and technicians, and numerous trainees.
