Virtual Tissue Engineering Seminar

We are proud to host a virtual Tissue Engineering seminar series. At the beginning of the pandemic, one of the things we missed the most was the ability to connect with other researchers and discuss current work within Tissue Engineering. We plan to continue this series and facilitate networking and discussion with our fellow researchers. Each semester, we will dedicate 2-3 sessions to students and provide a platform for students and trainees to share their progress.

  • The Spring 2024 virtual Tissue Engineering Seminar series will begin on Thursday, January 11, 2024, at 4-5 pm ET and run until May 2, 2024. Register here to join us!
  • If you are interested in presenting or would like to nominate someone, don’t hesitate to get in touch with us!
