In this seminar series, the Regenerative Medicines TIN 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.


  • Dr Asha Recino (TIN coordinator)- Introduction of the Regenerative Medicine TIN
  • Prof. Julie Daniels (IoO, TIN chair)- Stem cell based anti-scarring strategies for eye blinding disease/Cells for Sight
  • Dr Pascale Guillot (Institute of Women’s Health)- In vitro organ-on-a-chip platforms for neurodegenerative treatments
  • Prof. Rick Livesey (GOS Institute of Child Health)- Patient-specific neural cells for the In vitro study of brain disorders

This event offers an 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. With the Regenerative Medicines TIN, 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.
