Prof. Patricia Dankers and Prof. Jan de Boer host the kick-off meeting for 'Platform for Therapeutic Biomaterials Discovery” at ICMS-TU/e on 4th September, 2019. The meeting started with the welcoming of Jan and continued with very inspiring lectures given by Prof Morgan Alexandar, Prof Doris Heinrich, Dr Huipin Yuan and Dr Patrick van Rijn. After lectures, four paralel workshops were conducted about scaffolds, hydrogels, polymers and particles which are being used as common biomaterials. The main discussion was about to make a standard pipeline for biomaterial discovery platforms and start this standardisation process at TU/e with our own biomaterial research.
Prof. Patricia Dankers and Prof. Jan de Boer will lead the “Program for Therapeutic Biomaterials Discovery” at ICMS-TU/e with a kick-off workshop on 4th September, 2019.
