Event Details

 

Biological and biomimetic materials offer unusual properties that underpin their use in medical (including musculoskeletal) applications.

Recent scientific advances have unlocked even greater potential for improved clinical performance including regenerative properties, but at the same time raise challenges for both manufacturers and regulators.

This workshop will explore both recent scientific progress and the regulatory environment, ultimately contributing to a strategy to further exploit the opportunities offered by these exciting materials.

Confirmed speakers include:

  • Matthew Dalby (University of Glasgow) on biomimetic surfaces
  • Chris Holland (University of Sheffield & advisor to Oxford Biomaterials Ltd.) on spider silks
  • Jennifer Durrant (BSI) on the regulatory environment for biological and biomimetic materials
  • Eileen Ingham (University of Leeds) on decellularised matrices
  • Piergiorgio Gentile (University of Sheffield) on nanoscale biofunctionality
  • Nienke Lubben (HGF Ltd.) on IP & biological materials.
  • Stewart White (Collagen Solutions Ltd.) on the manufacture of medical grade collagens.
  • Rebecca Goodchild (Ceramisys Ltd.) orthopaedic products based on biomimetic nanotechnology.
  • Matthew German (University of Newcastle) on bioinspired adhesives.
  • Giuseppe Tronci (University of Leeds) on biomimetic materials for clinical applications

MeDe Innovation - The EPSRC Centre for Innovative Manufacturing in Medical Devices

The Centre for Innovative Manufacturing in Medical Devices researches and develops advanced design and manufacturing methods for the medical device sector.

Our  innovative design and manufacturing advances will focus in the first instance on class 3 medical devices for musculoskeletal disease, where the cost of device failure and need for throughout life reliability are high.

The Centre is a collaborative research project which brings together expertise from the universities of Leeds, Newcastle, Nottingham, Bradford and Sheffield as well as a range of expert clinicians from across the  UK. Our 12 founding industry members are embedded within our research projects, with many more forming an industry-wide network.

Our Centre for Innovative Manufacturing in Medical Devices is funded by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council and is part of a wider programme of support for innovative manufacturing research centres.
