ETPN RegMed WG Webinar on Implantable polymeric scaffolds for neural repair

On Thursday, 4 May 2017, the sixth from the series of webinars organized by AMIRES and the ETPN Regenerative Medicine Working Group (RegMed WG) took place.  A presentation titled „Implantable polymeric scaffolds for neural repair“ was be given by Prof. Maria Letizia Focarete, Department of Chemistry „Giacomo Ciamician“ and Health Sciences and Technologies – Interdepartmental Center for Industrial Research, University of Bologna  (click HERE for a bio) and Prof. Laura Calzà, Department of Pharmacy and Biotechnology and Health Sciences and Technologies – Interdepartmental Center for Industrial Research, University of Bologna (click HERE for a CV).

In their presentation, prof. Focarete and prof. Calzà introduced activities of the Health Sciences and Technologies—Interdepartmental Center for Industrial Research of the University of Bologna related to regenerative medicine and tissue engineering, and then illustrated a couple of recent research achievements on implantable polymeric biomaterials for neural repair. The presentation could be downloaded HERE and the recording of the webinar is available HERE.

The ETPN RegMed WG webinars are open to both ETPN members and non-members.  By presenting recent advancement of ETPN members in the Regenerative Medicine field, these webinars aim to improve know how exchange, identification of key European experts and a wider networking between ETPN members (e.g. for collaborative projects). It is also intended to keep webinars open for ETPN non-members, particularly for industrial companies, to facilitate cooperation between researchers and enterprises (mainly SMEs).
