Short abstract and comments

The NeuroGraft Project ‘Development of Functionalised Cell Seeded Bio-artificial Organ for Transplantation in Nerve Repair’ is a collaborative project funded under the 7th EU Framework Programme in the health space. Injuries and degenerative diseases of the central nervous system (CNS) constitute a bottleneck in medical and surgical practice for which no therapy currently exists. NeuroGraft will develop stem cell seeded functionalised bio-artificial organs. This exciting concept will be realised through the NeuroGraft consortium, consisting of one academic and four industrial partners (four SMEs), across four countries. These studies will facilitate progression to clinical trials of the technology (post-project) and the development of a marketable product within 6 years of the completion of the NeuroGraft project.

Potential uses/indications

Injuries and degenerative diseases of the central nervous system (CNS)
