About the Symposium

The theme of this two-day symposium is “Improving clinical outcomes through biomedical engineering research and innovation". Each day of the two-day symposium focuses on a different track:

Day 1 (23rd October 2018)

Focuses on Clinical Tissue Engineering-related topics, including but not limited to:

  • Characterization of engineered tissue
  • Clinical need for engineered tissues
  • Innovative approaches – in vitro or in vivo
  • Reconstruction surgery
  • Regenerative medicine
  • Tissue grafting

Day 2 (24th October 2018)

Focuses on Biomechanics-related topics, including but not limited to:

  • Bio-fluid mechanics
  • Biomechanics of biomaterials
  • Biomechanics of injury, treatment & rehabilitation
  • Biomechanical testing of novel medical devices
  • Cellular mechanics
  • Tissue mechanics

Registrants can choose to register for either day or both days of the symposium here.

We are also very honoured to have with us Distinguished Speaker Professor Wayne Morrison, who will be giving a Special Lecture on Innovative Approaches in In Vivo and In Vitro Clinical Tissue Engineering. Admission to the Special Lecture is free for all to attend on a first-come first-served basis.
Please see our Program for more information.
