Center for Neuromusculoskeletal Restorative Medicine – KI and CUHK in collaboration
The Center for Neuromusculoskeletal Restorative Medicine is a research collaboration between Karolinska Institutet (KI) and the Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK). The centre represents a continuation of the collaboration initiated via Ming Wai Lau Centre for Reparative Medicine (MWLC).
Center for Neuromusculoskeletal Restorative Medicine connects research between Sweden and Hong Kong by combining expertise in multi-disciplinary research areas such as stem cells, neurobiology, biomaterials, tissue engineering, as well as integrated medicine from both universities.
The research collaboration includes 23 research projects in the biomedical field, with focus on the restoring of structure and function in neuromusculoskeletal tissues and organs which have been injured or degenerated due to aging. The aim is to maintain mobility and enhance quality of life for the patient groups concerned.
The centre will be established in the same premises as MWLC in Hong Kong Science Park. According to the plan, the research collaboration will go on 2022-2026.
