Next Monday starts the 10th World Biomaterials Congress in Montreal, Canada. This is one of the largest scientific events in the field and three researchers in our team are flying to Canada with posters and talks.
Research Associate Annie Zhe Cheng will chair a New Frontiers Symposium: Bioinspired materials and devices for regenerative medicine, on May 20th.
Dr Cheng is also speaking May 19th on the New Frontiers Symposium: Biomaterials as stem cell microenvironments. Her talk is titled Engineering plasma-polymerised surfaces for synergistic integrin/growth factor signalling to promote mesenchymal stem cell adhesion and differentiation.
She will also be presenting a poster in the Biomaterials in cellular engineering poster session: #P.0315 Polymer micropatterning induces spatially organised fibronectin nanonetworks for efficient integrin/growth factor interaction.
PhD student Paula Sweeten is presenting a poster in the Tissue engineering and regenerative medicine poster session: #P.0681 Using surface chemistry to regulate behaviour of mesenchymal stem cells.
