About the employer

3DBT's technology is built upon 20 years of basic research. Applying the hypothesis that a better understanding of biology will lead to improved approaches to tissue engineering we have developed a powerful new process called tissue templating. Tissue templating is an in-house engineering platform that takes a bio-inspired, bottom-up approach to tissue engineering to create structured, functional, and scalable tissues. Structured - A Tissue-Templating approach to engineering tissues is cell-based which results in highly organised structures accurate at a nano- and macro-scale. Functional - Engineered tissue with appropriate hierarchical ECM arrangement produces unrivalled performance and functionality. Scalable - Production suits a traditional centralised manufacturing approach, in which hundreds of tissue-engineered products can be produced daily and without the use of animal components.
