Center for Neuromusculoskeletal Restorative Medicine
The Center for Neuromusculoskeletal Restorative Medicine has been established to advance biomedical research and development related to neuromusculoskeletal medicine. Combining the expertise in stem cells, biomaterials, 3D bioprinting, tissue engineering, and personalised and translational medicine of The Chinese University of Hong Kong and Sweden’s Karolinska Institutet, the Center is devoted to restoring structure and function to injured, diseased and degenerated (due to ageing or trauma) neuromusculoskeletal tissues and organs. This multi-disciplinary, international consortium aims to apply convergent principles and technologies of biomedical science and engineering to ultimately address mobility impairments and improve patients’ overall well-being.
Building on the talent and infrastructural research capabilities of CUHK and the research setup of the KI Hong Kong Ming Wai Lau Centre (MWLC) for Reparative Medicine in HKSTP, CNRM gathers multi-disciplinary investigators to lead projects across its five research programmes:
- Stem Cells and Cell-Based Therapies
- Tissue Engineering and 3D Microtissue Modeling
- Cellular and Molecular Mechanisms
- Preclinical and Clinical Translation
- Enabling Technologies
