Regeneration of OsteoArticular and Dental tissues


Bone, cartilage and tooth are tissues that make up the skeleton. The are essential to vital functions that include body growth, organ protection, movement and mastication. Our team focuses on studying the sane and pathological physiology of cartilage and tooth. Together with chemists and hospital practitioners, we are developing a multidisciplinary approach with a clinical scope. This involves nanoparticle-mediated drug delivery, 3D printing, cell therapy and tissue engineering for the reconstruction of articular cartilage, nasal cartilage and dental pulp.



Our group takes advantage of its long-term studies on chondrocyte differentiation and cartilage development to set up new protocols to repair cartilage, in collaboration with hospitals and industries. More specifically, we analyze :

Keywords : cartilage, chondrocyte, mechanotransduction, BMP-2 signaling, hypoxia, ingeneering , dental-pulp complex, stem cells
