Aus-China Centre for Tissue Engineering and Regenerative Medicine (ACCTERM)

Queensland University of Technology

Established in June 2013, ACCTERM is a multi-institutional and multidisciplinary research centre focused on developing novel products for tissue repair and regeneration. The Centre brings together a cooperative network of prestigious research institutes and universities both in Australia and China. ACCTERM draws together new and longstanding research collaborations in tissue engineering and regenerative medicine, and aids in creating a highly visible hub for research collaboration in biomaterials, stem cell application, dentistry, and orthopaedics. The Centre supports collaborative research projects, cooperative PhD training, and staff and student mobility.
