This webinar series explores one of the most promising and interdisciplinary research areas in medical sciences. We will look at innovative technologies involving tissue engineering, cell biology, and materials science for therapeutic applications and will showcase collaborative projects aiming at restoring impaired function of organs in the body. This time we have 3 great talks on projects at different stages of development exploring new strategies for tissue repair and regeneration or able to exploit other mechanisms of healing.


  • Dr Asha Recino (TIN coordinator)- Introduction of Regenerative Medicine TIN
  • Prof. Julie Daniels (IoO, TIN chair)- Introduction of speakers
  • Prof. Suwan Jayasinghe (Dept of Mechanical Engineering)- Cell Handling Platforms for Reconstructing Multi-Cellular Three-Dimensional Architectures
  • Dr Aurora Almadori (Division of Surgery & Interventional Science)- The Use of Human Adipose Derived Stem Cells in Scleroderma
  • Dr Chara Simitzi (Institute of Materials Discovery)- Modular Bottom-Up Tissue Engineering with Implantable Microcarriers and Mesenchymal Stromal Cells

In this event, you will have the opportunity to know about the wealth of ground-breaking translational research occurring in the Regenerative Medicine space here at UCL, get inspired with new ideas and increase the number of opportunities for collaborations across disciplines. You will enter a community with multidisciplinary backgrounds and will hear about the internal and external support and funding collaborative projects receive.

We hope for basic and translational researchers from across UCL to attend. We aim to remove barriers and reach out to researchers at all career stages across departments and research areas. We'd also like to invite existing and potential industry partners to attend, as we highlight case studies of Regenerative Medicine at UCL and provide insights into the work of the TIN and the types of projects looking for collaborators to accelerate translation.
