Chemical engineers at Queen’s are working with Octane Biotech Inc., a leader in regenerative medicine, to develop a platform for engineering tissue that will improve orthopedic reconstruction. Bringing together expertise in stem cell isolation and culture with the development of a sophisticated polymer support for cell-growth, their work holds the potential to create a minimally invasive method for producing tissue for bone and cartilage replacement.
