Centre for Cell Biology and Tissue Engineering

«Pharma, biotech, food and cosmetics companies search for robust and cost-effective solutions to test their products. Our scientists support industry to develop, implement and validate living 3D tissues. With a broad portfolio of engineering and manufacturing technologies from spheroids to bioprinting, we we provide viable alternative methods and models to animal testing. »

We follow industry trends

Increasing healthcare costs, the ageing population, and rising prevalence of chronic disease continue to shape the life science industry. Furthermore, animal testing results are heavily questioned for their suitability and translatability for the benefit of human health combined with ethical issues. To this end, the development of automated cell culture systems, use of 3D cell culture models as an alternative tool to in vivo testing, and increasing focus on regenerative medicine act as drivers of the global 3D cell culture market. The global 2017 3D cell culture market was worth USD 682.8 million and is expected to grow by 20.3% from 2018 to 2023 (Mordor Intelligence "3d cell culture market" Report). The demand for organ transplantation has also increased worldwide.

We specialize in biofabrication

At Centre for Cell Biology and Tissue Engineering, our scientists provide expertise and support projects from an early idea up to the product market implementation. The group has over 15 years of experience with tissue engineering. Our core expertise are 3D bioprinting, metabolic tissue engineering, skin models, and tumor model development. We lead international Competence Centre TEDD (Tissue Engineering for Drug Development and Substance Testing) with a broad industrial network.

We talk academic and industrial language

As a University of Applies Sciences, we are bridging the academic creativity with practical industrial application and Swiss quality high working ethics. We base collaborative projects on long-term relationships with companies. Our basis are collaborative projects on long-term relationships with companies built on trust.
