May Griffith's Biography

May Griffith, Professor, Linkoping University

May Griffith is Professor of Regenerative Medicine and Director of the Integrative Regenerative Medicine (IGEN) Centre at Linköping University, Sweden. Her research interests are in the area of Regenerative Medicine, with special interests in biomaterials enhanced or enabled cell-based regeneration. She has been focussing mainly on corneal regeneration. Most recently, she has completed a Phase I clinical study where cell-free biomimetic scaffolds implanted enabled regeneration of human corneas that normally on their own, do not regenerate. Prof. Griffith's biosynthetic - and also biomimetic - materials have also been successfully tested in collaboration with other researchers for use in cartilage and cardiovascular regeneration. In 2013, Prof. Griffith led her EU Nanomedicine team on the project, "I-CARE" to win the ETPN nano medicine award for regenerative medicine. One of the implants optimised in I-CARE is now being tested in pre-clinical large animal trials and human clinical trials.

Biomimetic materials mimicking the extracellular matrix of the human corneal stroma promote stable regeneration of the human cornea. Addition of a second network of polymers to the implants further reinforced the materials to allow for integration into high risk corneas.
