Project: Research project

Project Details

Description

The Engineering Research Center (ERC) for Advanced Technologies for the Preservation of Biological Systems (ATP-Bio) aims to “stop biological time” and radically extend the ability to bank and transport cells, aquatic embryos, tissue, skin, whole organs, microphysiological systems (“organs-on-a-chip”), and even whole organisms through a team approach to build advanced biopreservation technologies.

The Center will be co-led by faculty within IEM at the University of Minnesota and the Center for Engineering in Medicine (CEM) at the Massachusetts General Hospital, with collaboration from the University of California Riverside, and University of California Berkeley. Fourteen faculty members from the University of Minnesota are part of ATP-Bio which has a total of 32 faculty in all institutions.
