Cardiff Institute for Tissue Engineering and Repair (CITER)

CITER is an internationally recognised centre of excellence in the field of tissue repair, regeneration and rehabilitation, focusing on interdisciplinary research, education and clinical practice.

This MSc programme has been established since 2006. It is aimed at students who wish to experience the stimulating challenges of interface research in the field of tissue engineering and repair.

Our research is organised into three themes - stem cell science, tissue engineering and repair, and disease translation.

I would strongly encourage all young investigators to apply for CITER funding. As an early career researcher, it is incredibly encouraging and motivating to receive such a prestigious award. I have no doubt that the impact of this award on my professional maturity and independence as a researcher will be long-term and internationally recognised.

Seedcorn Bursary Funding 2019 - call 2

19 June 2019

Congratulations to Dr Mohammad Al-Amri from the School of Healthcare Sciences on his successful application to receive funding as part of the second call for the CITER Seedcorn bursary 2018-2019.

We are regularly engaged in an increasing number of outreach events each year, including public events, dedicated CITER-run primary school and secondary school visits as well as Cardiff University events.

Awards and bursaries provide our members with opportunities to develop new research ideas within the broad remit of tissue engineering, repair and rehabilitation.

The award enabled me to travel as a visiting Research Fellow to my collaborator for a few days each month together with attending numerous related conferences to present my work. This bursary has provided an important first step towards developing this technology for utilisation in Cardiff and embarking on a programme of independent research.
