About us

Regenerative medicine aims to repair, replace or regenerate damaged tissues, using cell or gene therapy and tissue engineering. 

The Manchester Regenerative Medicine Network (MaRMN) brings together internationally renowned biologists, material scientists, bioengineers and clinicians to translate basic biological research into viable clinical therapies. 

MaRMN aims to:

  • bring together basic scientists from the different disciplines to enhance the University’s capacity in regenerative medicine and enable strategic multidisciplinary grant bids;
  • help basic scientists move their projects into clinical protocols by creating links with clinicians interested in translating new cell, gene and bioengineering protocols to the clinic.
