Title Biologic Scaffold Development
Description This collaborative research and development effort involves the characterization of various forms of extracellular matrix, especially porcine dermal derived extracellular matrix, for development and use as a biologic scaffold for pelvic floor reconstruction and general surgical use. The effort characterizes and identifies novel biomaterials for general surgical applications; particularly pelvic floor reconstruction and hernia repair. We will apply principles of regenerative medicine to principles of general surgery.
