EyeScite project

Functie omschrijving

Student project
The EyeScite partners are searching for licensing partners to market its products for the biotechnological, pharmaceutical, medical device or potential other industries.
Your project will involve translating the scientific inventions into a value proposition and business canvas for one of the products in the different work packages. We are looking for students who studies involve disciplines of Biomaterials, Biology, Medicine or Business and are interested in the entrepreneurial side of science.
You will collaborate with Scientists and Students in dr. Stefan Giselbrecht’s an dr. Matt Baker’s group at the MeRLN Institute and dr. Jeanine Hendriks Senior Business Developer at Brightlands Maastricht Health Campus .


Over the last decade, the idea that a bioengineered cornea could address the donor shortage has gained credibility. Recent developments in biomaterials and cell biology make it feasible to develop bioengineered corneal tissue to replace (for corneal disease) and reshape (for refractive
error) the human cornea. Moreover, recent developments in lamellar corneal surgery that allows selective replacement of diseased corneal layers have set the stage for transplantation of a bioengineered cornea. In this proposal we will use cutting edge technologies developed by our consortium to answer these unmet clinical needs. EyeSciTe is about combining the strengths of UM (bioengineering), TU/e (chemistry), MUMC+ (ophthalmology), DSM (materials), and our industry partners, who each bring a critical component into this proposal (Figure). Together, we will develop the tools to address two pressing needs in the field of ophthalmology: cell culture platforms to overcome problems related with donor tissue shortage, and regenerative strategies spanning from acellular corneal inlays through to bioengineered constructs for the treatment of various conditions of the human cornea.
