Purpose of center:
NJCBM is an interdisciplinary research center that spans academia, industry and government. As biomaterials scientists, our goal is to conduct state-of-the-art research in biomaterials science and engineering and to improve health care and the quality of life by developing advanced biomaterial products for tissue repair and replacement, and the delivery of pharmaceutical agents. Our technologies have been translated into pre-clinical and clinical products, including an antimicrobial implant for the prevention of pacemaker infections, a surgical mesh for hernia repair, a fully resorbable and x-ray visible coronary stent, a bone regeneration scaffold and an ocular drug delivery system for the treatment of inflammatory eye disorders. NJCBM has a 3D-printing lab with several 3D printers including EnvisionTec's manufacturer series 3D-Bioplotter. In addition to state-of-the-art equipment and facilities NJCBM also has a Class 10,000 clean room equipped for fabrication of prototype devices in GLP conditions. NJCBM also promotes training and workforce development through postdoctoral and summer student training programs.
