Event description

Description

The general aim of the Biological Making Workshop is to coalesce a ‘Biological Making Community’ in the London area. The specific aim of this event is to bring together people, ideas and activities surrounding biological making – including but not limited to micro-, macro-, optical-, thermal- and electronic-design and fabrication (such as microfluidics, micropatterning, 3D printing and CNC milling). This is being spearheaded by the newly formed Making Lab at the Francis Crick institute.

Keynote speaker, Prof Christopher S Chen (Department of Biomedical Engineering, Boston University and Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering, Harvard University).

Prof Christopher Chen has been instrumental in engineering the cellular microenvironment to study cell function. The goal of Dr. Chen’s research is to identify the underlying mechanisms by which cells interact with materials and each other to build tissues, and to apply this knowledge in the biology of stem cells, tissue vascularization, connective tissues, and cancer. He has received numerous honors, including the Presidential Early Career Award for Scientists and Engineers, and the Office of Naval Research Young Investigator Award.
