Laboratory of Osteoarticular Biology, Bioengineering and Bioimaging UMR CNRS 7052 INSERM U1271
The laboratory of Osteoarticular Biology, Bioengineering and Bioimaging (B3OA) UMR CNRS 7052 INSERM U1271 is affiliated with the CNRS Department of Science for Engineers , with the INSERM , with the Paris University and with the Ecole Nationale Vétérinaire de Maisons-Alfort .
Since its creation in 1977, the B3OA has developed a renowned expertise for repair and imaging of osteoarticular tissues. Based on its experience, the mission of the B3O lab is to provide world-class research and education on osteo-articular bioengineering and imaging.
The B3OA lab's important knowledge and unique expertise in tissue engineering, medical imaging and cellular and molecular biology enables it to develop innovative, multidisciplinary approaches for orthopedics, dentistry and radiology.

Effect of the bone morphogenetic protein-2 doses on the osteogenic potential of human multipotent stromal cells-containing tissue engineered constructs
Our results showed that the addition of only low dose of BMP-2 was beneficial to enhance the bone-forming potential of MSCs, whereas high dose of BMP-2 overcame the advantage of…
In this uncontrolled study, airway bioengineering using stented aortic matrices demonstrated feasibility for complex tracheal and bronchial reconstruction.
Type 2 diabetes impairs angiogenesis and osteogenesis in calvarial defects: MicroCT study in ZDF rats
The present study provided evidence that T2DM impairs bone formation in critical-size calvarial defects and markedly reduces angiogenesis in all defects regardless of the defect size tested.
