30th annual conference of the European Society for Biomaterials

30th annual conference of the European Society for Biomaterials was held together with the 26th annual conference of the German Society for Biomaterials (DGBM) from September 9 to 13 in Dresden. The ESB brought material and biotechnology science researchers, as well as clinicians and company representatives, from 41 countries together to provide a synergetic environment for stimulating knowledge exchange and discussions about the latest research topics. Our project partner ENT was represented in the meeting by Dipl.-Ing. Phlipp Kempert with an oral presentation titled "Validation of eardrum replacement scaffolds made from electrospinning".

Innovation for Health conference, Rotterdam

 


Shivesh Anand, a PhD candidate represented the 4NanoEARDRM team at the Innovation for Health conference, organized at WTC Rotterdam (Netherlands) on February 14, 2019. Based on his poster presentation, he was chosen among the top 10 researchers competing for the prestigious Upcoming Scientist Award. In the final round of pitch presentations, Shivesh highlighted the ingenuity and social impact of our multi-scale biofabrication strategy for manufacturing human tympanic membrane.

3rd MERLN annual PhD Symposium

 Shivesh Anand, a PhD candidate involved in the 4NanoEARDRM project was awarded the first prize for rapid-fire poster presentation at the 3rd MERLN annual PhD Symposium, held in Maastricht (Netherlands) on December 7, 2018. Shivesh presented his work on the nano-biofabrication approaches towards manufacturing of human tympanic membrane, where he highlighted the multi-scale fabrication strategy of combining electrospinning with additive manufacturing.

 

 

5th Biomaterial days Symposium

 

Ms. Burcu Gencer, a graduate student, attended the 5th Biomaterial Days Symposium, which took place at Yıldız Technical University from 22 to 23 October 2018. She presented a poster with the title “Synthesis and Characterization of Molecularly Imprinted Nano Structures for Controlled Drug Release”. She met scientists interested in biomaterials from different universities of Turkey. Therefore it was an excellent opportunity for her to exchange scientific ideas, to discuss interesting research topics and to make new collaborations.

 

World TERMIS Conferce, Kyoto

Serena Danti and Luisa Trombi attended the World TERMIS conference held in Kyoto from 4-7 September (during the typhoon!!) to represent the 4NanoEARDRM team. During the poster presentation several asian students and researchers came and asked questions. The idea of a multifucntional tympanic membrane scaffold was highly appreciated. In particular, the use of an instructive polymer, such as PEOT/PBT, able to reduce inflammatory cytokines and to stimulate innate immune response (via defensins) was considered a very interesting and potentially successful to fight chronic otitis media. By the way, it was quite unusual facing a typhoon and more than 3000 attandants had to reschedule their flights. Serena and Luisa flew through Korea and China, to be back safe in Europe after a 36 hour travel.
