From discovery science to industrial applications: Biomicrofabrication of Cellular Interfaces
Shery Huang's group 'Biointerface' (based at the Department of Engineering) explores a new generation of tissue engineering constructs for personalised therapy at affordable costs, with a focus on 3D bioprinting/ bio-microfabrication and developing biomimetic organ-on-chips for high throughput drug testing.
|Dates||20 Jun 2018 - This event is in the past.|
|Opening times||5pm for 5.30pm until 7pm|
|Venue||Maxwell Centre, University of Cambridge, JJ Thomson Avenue, CB3 0HE|
|Organiser name||Louise Rushworth|
The group aims to provide new solutions for future disease monitoring, drug testing and better patient healthcare, through a highly multi-disciplinary approach, crossing fields of engineering, biology, chemistry, polymer physics and computer science.
They combine nanotechnology and new material fabrication techniques to construct the defined biochemical and physical inputs of an extracellular matrix (ECM) scaffold.
Shery Huang will talk about the group’s work and how it might be applied to industrial processes now and in the future. For further information please see http://www.eng.cam.ac.uk/profiles/yysh2.
About the speaker: Dr Yan Yan Shery Huang completed her MEng degree in Materials Science and Engineering from Imperial College London in 2007 (1st Class; top of the class for four years). With a Cambridge Gates Scholarship, she then pursued a PhD in Physics at Cambridge, focusing on carbon nanotechnology. Dr Huang was a visiting researcher at University of Texas at Austin (2008). After graduating from her PhD in 2011, she was awarded an Oppenheimer Fellowship and a Homerton College Junior Research Fellowship. Since Aug 2013, she has had a Lectureship in Bioengineering.
