Abstract:
One-day Course, Linnean Society, London, 7 May 2009

Nanotechnology and Regenerative Medicine

London | Posted on April 9th, 2009

Learn how the ability to manipulate novel materials at the nanoscale combined with advances in cell biology will revolutionize the repair and replacement of tissues and help to address key healthcare challenges of today.

A one-day course covering the latest advances in tissue engineering, and cell and gene therapy. Hear about nanoscaffolds, cell growth stimulation, controlled vascularization and "advanced therapy medicinal products."

Topics to be covered will include:


  • the clinical challenges of a demographically changing society
  • core technologies relevant to tissue engineering & regeneration
  • highly functionalised new materials for use as scaffolds
  • engineering of soft, skeletal, vascular and nerve tissues
  • prospects and challenges for complex tissue and partial and whole organ regeneration
  • commercialisation: bringing regenerative medicine to market and clinic for the benefit of the patient
  • risks, ethical and regulatory aspects.
