ICaRe – Calabrian Infrastructure for regenerative medicine: generation of bio-banks for the cryopreservation of human stem cells and bone tissue for clinical use and design and development of innovative bioscaffold
The ICARE Project, financed with funds PON Rec 2007-2013, It aimed at the study of stem cells for clinical use in regenerative medicine, the study of the characteristics of the cell CB banking and features implemented in the development of technologically advanced biobanks and scaffolds. The innovative potential resides in the technological approach used for the preparation of stem cell lines of different nature and in the choice of the source tissue from which such cells are derived and cryopreserved.
