Designing materials for regenerative medicine
Fri 14 October 2016, 18:00 – 19:00 BST
Bio-responsive nanomaterials are of growing importance with potential applications including drug delivery, diagnostics and tissue engineering. A disagreeable side effect of longer life-spans is the failure of one part of the body – the knees, for example – before the body as a whole is ready to surrender. This talk will outline the latest efforts in the design of new materials to heal the body.
This event will also be live-streamed – http://livestream.com/refinerytv/
Doors open at 17.30, and the event will be followed by a free wine reception.
Pre-registration is required, however seats are allocated on a first come, first serve basis. Please arrive early to avoid disappointment.
