InterLynk scientists participate in TERMIS World Congress, chaired this year by InterLynk researcher Lorenzo Moroni
Various InterLynk scientists will chair parallel sessions, hold keynote addresses and present their research at this year’s 6th TERMIS world congress on tissue engineering and regenerative medicine.
InterLynk, with its focus on the development of human-based, patient-specific, multimaterial 3D scaffolds employing bioprinting technologies fits well this year’s conference larger topic on “Biologically inspired technology driven regenerative medicine”. The event will allow InterLynk researchers to connect with other scientists in the field and present their own findings.
InterLynk scientist, Lorenzo Moroni, this year’s conference chair from the University of Maastricht, will be chairing the session on Frontiers in food Tissue Engineering.
InterLynk coordinator and recent recipient of the prestigious George Winter Award, João Mano will chair the session on frontiers of biomaterial design and development for tissue engineering & regenerative medicine. He will also hold a keynote lecture in one of the various parallel sessions entitled “Designing the micro- to macro-environment of cells for tissue engineering applications”.
InterLynk researcher Carlos Mota from the University of Maastricht, will present his research in a series of sessions throughout the conference, while holding the keynote lecture on advanced biofabrication technologies during a parallel session on Frontiers of Biofabrication for tissue engineering & regenerative medicine. He will also be chairing the session on the development of bioinks for biofabrication, during which another InterLynk researcher, Vitor Gaspar will be talking about suspension bioprinting using photo-crosslinkable bioinks.
Catarina Custodio founder and CEO of InterLynk partner, Metatissue, will be presenting on human protein based platforms for 3D cell culture - a new era for personalized engineering tissues. In her talk she will particularly focus on the prospects of human-based biomaterials prepared from placenta and platelet rich plasma (PRP) to engineer humanized platforms for cell culture.
This year’s conference takes place online out of Maastricht from Nov. 15 – 19, 2021. For more information and the full program, please visit the conference website at https://termis.org/WC2021
