Our projects are supported by two state-of-the-art core facilities:
Dr. Robert Latour, Core Director
The Materials Synthesis,Characterization,and Testing Core supports the characterization and analysis of biomaterials and implants developed by SCBioMat researchers. The core consists of three areas of primary focus: 1) Design and Synthesis of Materials; 2 ) Chemical and Surface Characterization; and 3) Mechanical Testing.
Dr. Dan Simonescu, Director
The Cell and Molecular Engineering Core at MUSC provides resources and expertise for project investigators, enabling them to extend their research efforts in tissue bioengineering and permitting them to participate in an emerging field of stem cells that is likely to change the way regenerative medicine research is practiced in the future.
