CBS-KSC is hosting our first Science Club. Science Club consists of an organized, small group of graduate students and postdocs from different departments attending sessions on a regular basis to critically evaluate a particular scientific topic and discuss potential solutions.
The theme of this series is: Frontiers in Biomaterials and Tissue Engineering.
There will be 9, one hour meetings during March-May. The meetings will take place on Thursdays between 12:00-1:00 pm in the Charles Sorbie Conference Room of the HMRC. If you need directions to this room, please email us at email@example.com. Coffee will be provided and we encourage you to bring your own lunch.
Participants will be given a maximum of 1 hour worth of reading to do before the session. Session topics are listed below, and the schedule shows the dates when each topic will be presented.
- On the nature of biomaterials and biocompatibility
- Nanobiomaterials: what is this thing?
- Organ 3D printing: limits and challenges
- Polymers vs. biodegradable polymers, metals vs. biodegradable metals
- Smart polymeric biomaterials
- In vivo, in vitro, and in situ tissue engineering: pros and cons
- Academic vs. industry medical devices: paradigms, paradoxes and regulatory process
- How can we provide tissue engineered medical devices for everybody?
- One day, tissue engineering medical devices will not be a challenge anymore… What’s next?
Regardless of your year and degree/discipline, please feel free to come out and learn about some interesting topics you might otherwise not get the chance to be taught in your regular courses. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in attending any of the sessions, and we will add you to our email list!
We look forward to seeing you there!
