Focus on research

Prometheus: the Leuven R&D division for skeletal tissue engineering, KU Leuven - University of Leuven

Prometheus, the division of Skeletal Tissue Engineering of KU Leuven – University of Leuven, is an interdisciplinary initiative focusing on skeletal TE research and technology transfer, founded by the Divisions of Rheumatology, Orthopedics, Biomechanics, Experimental Medicine and Endocrinology, Prosthetic Dentistry, and the Department of Materials Engineering (MTM). More recently, the divisions of Biomechanics (University of Liège) and Bioresponses (Bioscience Engineering,
KU Leuven) joined the platform. The Prometheus team consists of 50+ PhD students, postdocs, PIs, lab technologists and clinical partners.

The Prometheus platform runs 3 integrated programs:

  • fundamental science related to stem cells and 3D tissue creation,
  • translation of scientific findings into a technological plan for manufacturing processes, quality and safety,
  • creation of blue prints for the clinical implementation of a bone TE therapy.

These three programs are divided into several research tracks that are coordinated by experts in the field and are supported by a broad technology platform and state-of-the-art infrastructure.
