More than 1.5 million people in the Netherlands suffer from osteoarthritis – a degenerative joint disease. For many osteoarthritis patients, there is currently no treatment that can slow the disease process or cure it. Therefore, they struggle with pain and movement limitations every day. LS-NeoCarE wants to improve their lives by developing durable regenerative cartilage implants. These living implants are based on revolutionary stem cell (iPSCs), bioreactor, and 3D-printing technologies. Through the active involvement of researchers, industry, doctors, and patient organizations, the project creates support among both patients and doctors for applicability and with industry for marketing the developed implants.
Official secretary on behalf of the consortium: prof. dr. ir. K. (Keita) Ito – Eindhoven University of Technology
