This webinar series will explore 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 enabling new opportunities for the repair of musculoskeletal defects.


  • Dr Asha Recino (TIN coordinator)- introduction of Regenerative Medicine TIN
  • Prof. Jonathan Knowles (Eastman Dental Institute, TIN chair)- Novel materials for hard and soft tissue regeneration and introduction of speakers
  • Dr Deepak Kalaskar (Department of Ortho and MSK Science)- 3D bioprinting of engineered hard and soft tissues
  • Prof. Jennifer Morgan (Great Ormond Street Institute of Child Health)- Autologous stem cell based therapies to treat Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy

In this event, you will have the opportunity to learn 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.

Basic and translational researchers from across UCL are encouraged to attend. The Regenerative Medicines TIN aims 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, providing insights into the work of the TINs and an example of the types of projects looking for collaborators to accelerate translation.
