Several members of NJCBM (both current and past) attended ESB 2017 in Athens at the beginning of September.
Two of our international exchange graduate students from Summer 2017 presented work that they did over the summer at NJCBM.
Maria Puertas presented a poster on “Novel Bioinspired Functional Polymers with Bioadhesive and Thermosensitive Properties”
I-Ning Lee spoke about her work on “Control of Mesenchymal Stem Cell Adhesion and Differentiation using Large-Area Chemical Nanoarrays by Polymer Pen Lithography”
Dr. Antonio Merolli spoke about work he has done at the center with support from RUNEG: "An Engineered Nerve-Regeneration Surgical Approach in Disruptive Brachial Plexus Lesions"
Dr. Joachim Kohn, NJCBM Director, led several events in his role as Chair of the ICF-BSE (International College of Fellows of Biomaterials Science and Engineering.)
Dr. Kohn organized a special Fellows Session in which four Fellows spoke on "Important Controversies in Biomaterials Science". THis session was standing-room only and was attended by over 200 people.
Dr. Kohn also represented the ICF-BSE at business meetings for the College and the International Union of Societies forf Biomaterials Science and Engineering.
