  • Kidney Regeneration
  • Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is a leading cause of mortality and morbidity worldwide, affecting beween 8% and 16%
    of the global adult population. Despite the rise in the prevalence of CKD, renal replacement therapeutic options remain
    limited to either peritoneal-dialysis, hemodialysis or kidney transplantation. Recen advances in tissue engineering, stem
    cell research, and regenerative medicine have offered new hope for the treatment of kidney diseases. In particular,
    the use of scaffolds to help repair damaged or injured tissue has emerged as a promising approach in the field of renal
    regeneration.

  • Vascularized Tissue Regeneration
  • Tissue engineering and regenerative medicine aim at restoring a damaged tissue by recreating in vitro or promoting its
    regeneration in vivo. The vasculature is central to these therapies for the irrigation of the defective tissue (oxygen, nutrien
    ts or circulating regenerative cells) and as an inductive, trophic embedded organ. This thesis describes the in vitro forma
    tion of biological vascular networks for tissue engineering and regenerative medicine applications.
