Inaugural Bosch Institute Symposium
The inaugural Bosch Tissue Engineering Symposium will be held on Thursday 23 November at the Darlington Centre, University of Sydney.
The key organiser of the symposium is Dr Hala Zreiqat who is the Head of the Biomaterials and Tissue Engineering Research Laboratory, Biomedical Engineering at the University of Sydney.
“This symposium is an important first step in a very important collaboration between both the Faculties of Engineering and Medicine and the key researchers in the Bosch Institute’s Organ & tissue replacement research theme. It will focus on transplantation, complications of diabetes, wound healing, growth factors, stem cell biology, bioengineering of tissues and organs, biomaterials”, says Jacquie Stratford, Chief Operating Officer of the Bosch Institute.
The symposium will feature key Bosch researchers, senior clinicians and distinguished invited speakers and guests including Peter MacDonald, UNSW (Stem cells/heart disease), Andrew Zannettino, Adelaide (mesenchymal stem cells), John Rasko, Sydney (stem cell therapy), Tony Weiss, Sydney (synthetic elastin), Veronique Migonney, Paris (PET and ligaments), Rutledge Ellis-Behnke, MIT (NanoNeuro knitting/brain and axon regeneration/vision), Chris Little, Sydney (cartilage tissue engineering), Hong Zhou, Sydney (osteoblasts and tissue engineering), Greg Rodger, Sydney (dynamic tissue engineering in orthopaedics), and David Little, Sydney (bone tissue engineering).
Included in the program will be the first meeting of the Sydney University Tissue Engineering Network (SUTEN), a key initiative of the Bosch Institute.
