The primary goal of this COBRE center is to increase the number of NIH-supported biomedical researchers in the state of South Carolina, particularly at Clemson University.

For this purpose,Clemson University's unique strengths in biomaterials and tissue engineering are complemented by expertise in medicine and developmental biology at the Medical University of South Carolina and the University of South Carolina to establish a Bioengineering Center for Regeneration and Formation of Tissues (SC BioCRAFT) at Clemson University.

This COBRE center will significantly augment collaborative efforts in South Carolina to recruit, train,and retain a critical mass of investigators with cross-disciplinary skills to collaborate effectively in the research area of regenerative medicine.

Mission Statement

We strive to find better treatments for human diseases by fostering interdisciplinary collab-orations among researchers and enhancing interdependent intellectual capital and resources within the State of South Carolina.
