 Project objective

Repair of articular cartilage defects remains a significant clinical challenge due to gaps in our knowledge of articular cartilage development and maintenance in adulthood. This creates a lack of consensus on the ideal cell source for cell-based repair strategies and suitable methods of delivery. The overall goal of ReSurface is to develop a cell therapy platform for articular cartilage defect repair. This will be achieved by unravelling the molecular mechanisms controlling articular cartilage cell development and maintenance, generation of a panel of molecular parameters defining populations of cells that are safe and suitable for articular cartilage repair, and development of a minimally invasive method to deliver cells to the defect site. This project is highly multidisciplinary and intersectoral combining fundamental developmental and molecular cell biology with advanced engineering techniques and including significant industry and clinical collaboration throughout. This fellowship will have an outgoing phase at Dr April Craft’s Lab at Boston Children’s Hospital (BCH), affiliated with Harvard Medical School (HMS) and the Harvard Stem Cell Institute (HSCI), and a return phase to Prof Garry Duffy’s Lab at the National University of Ireland, Galway (NUIG) which is part of the Science Foundation Ireland funded Centre for Research in Medical Devices (CÚRAM). Clinical collaborators will include BCH, Brigham and Women’s Hospital, Boston, University College Hospital Galway (UCHG) and the Regenerative Medicine Institute (REMEDI) at NUIG while industry collaborators include Boston Scientific Limited (BSL). Having recently completed my PhD in biomaterials development, this project will diversify my professional competencies through advanced training with intersectoral and international collaborations and provide me with the scientific and transferable skills required for my transition to an independent scientist role.

Are you the coordinator (or a participant) of this project? Plaese send me more information about the "RESURFACE" project.

For instance: the website url (it has not provided by EU-opendata yet), the logo, a more detailed description of the project (in plain text as a rtf file or a word file), some pictures (as picture files, not embedded into any word file), twitter account, linkedin page, etc.

Send me an  email ( and I put them in your project's page as son as possible.

Thanks. And then put a link of this page into your project's website.
