Food Poverty is a major public health concern. Its chief symptom is the number of people attending Foodbanks to receive emergency food aid. The largest Foodbank charity, the Trussell Trust, has reported that in the first 6 months of this year, referrals were up by 13% to 587,000 people, including 209,000 children.

DoM Seminar Series 24th November 2017

Dr Eileen Gentleman
Senior Research Fellow and Principal Investigator in the Centre for Craniofacial and Regenerative Biology at King's College London.              

"Unravelling how bi-directional cell-biomaterial interactions direct stem cell fate in 3D"

Dr Eileen Gentleman is a Senior Research Fellow and Principal Investigator in the Centre for Craniofacial and Regenerative Biology at King's College London. She joined Imperial College London in 2005 as post-doctoral research associate (Professor Molly Stevens Group), after completing her PhD in Biomedical Engineering (Tulane University, USA). In 2011, she moved to King's where her research focuses on engineering the 3D cell niche to control stem cell differentiation for tissue engineering, particularly to regenerate osteochondral tissue. Her multi-disciplinary research interests also include fundamental mechanisms of biomineralisation and the role of mechano-sensing in tissue development. Her work has been published in Nature Materials, Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences USA, and Biomaterials. Dr Gentleman has received funding awards from the Wellcome Trust, the Rosetrees Trust, the Royal Society and Orthopaedic Research UK, and is a recipient of both a Wellcome Image Award (2016) and an MIT Koch Institute Image Award (2016). The Orthopaedic Research Society named her as a finalist for their New Investigator Recognition Award (2010) and in 2013 her work in regenerative medicine was recognised with a prestigious Philip Leverhulme Prize.
