Tissue Engineering

Using a combination of cells, engineering and materials methods to improve or replace biological tissues (including bioprinting).

LP3 (Marseille, France)

LP3 is a multidisciplinary academic laboratory of excellence. Its major activities focus on: i) generation of secondary sources such as hard X-ray by laser-induced plasma technology ii) fundamentals and technological research of laser-matter interactions and iii) development of laser-based processes. The main applications are related to laser structuration and fabrication with major outcomes in photonics, microelectronics, medicine and laser-based diagnostics.

VULRC (Vilnius, Lithuania)

Vilnius University Laser Research Center (VULRC) hosts a number of laboratories dedicated to fundamental and applied laser research. The research topics include but are not limited to laser micromachining, nanophotonics, standardized metrology of optical components, development of novel laser and parametric sources, investigation of nonlinear phenomena in the NIR and MIR spectral ranges, generation and application of broadband terahertz pulses, time-resolved spectroscopy, nonlinear microscopy and laser induced breakdown spectroscopy.

LENS (Florence, Italy)

LENS, the European Laboratory for Non-Linear Spectroscopy, is a center of excellence at the University of Florence. Research interests include photonics, biophysics, chemistry and atomic physics. Three different main research areas (BIOPHOTONICS, PHOTONIC MATERIALS, ATOMIC PHYSICS) and more than twenty research topics, corresponding to active laboratories, are presently running.
