Regenerative Engineering Society Workshop
Recent Advances in 3D Printing of Biomaterials:
Industrial and academic researchers have recently examined the use of 3D printing technologies to overcome the limitations associated with conventional manufacturing processes. These technologies involved fabrication of three-dimensional structures through joining of materials in a layer-by-layer manner. This workshop will review recent developments in 3D printing technologies for processing biomaterials into artificial tissues, biosensors, drug delivery devices, medical instruments, medical models, and food products. Several topics related to 3D printing, including processing of radiographic images, development of computer models, novel 3D printing technologies, and novel materials for use in 3D printing, will be discussed.
Mental Health and Wellbeing as a Scientist:
Scientific research – whether it’s graduate school, postdoctoral research, or academia itself – presents significant stressors to mental and emotional health. The job search and transition to independency can also introduce pressure for young scientists, especially during uncertain times. Come join the National Student Chapter and Young Scientist Group for a workshop on stress management, work/life balance, and mental health, organized by trainees, mental health advocates, and wellbeing specialists. We will also be discussing critical skills you can develop to better support your friends and peers with Julie Edwards, Director of Health Promotion at UChicago.
Through this workshop, we hope to provide you with new tools to support your own mental and emotional health in academia and industry, as well as strategies to better support those around you.
Science Communication and Personal Branding for Biomaterials Scientists:
Academic and industry professionals in the biomaterials field require the ability to concisely convey the impact of their individual research niche to colleagues, the general public, and potential investors/funding agencies. In this workshop, graduate students, postdoc trainees, assistant professors, and other young scientists will learn key strategies for developing their personal and/or laboratory brand. Strategies will include: how to develop a theme and identity, self-promote research, deliver a one-minute elevator pitch, know your audience, engage in social media, and optimize networking.
Biomaterials Science Excellence and Technology Translation Workshop:
Biomaterials Science has gained increasing importance at the forefront of interdisciplinary research and undoubtedly the advance of biomaterial science will have great impact on the health and economy development. This workshop discussion, co-sponsored/organized by (Oversea) Chinese Association for Biomaterials (CAB), includes invited presentations/lectures from global biomaterial leaders in biomaterials science and a panel discussion to discuss biomaterial innovation, international collaboration, venture investment, company
startups, intellectual property, and other key elements en route to successful biomaterial technology translation. The panelists consist of investors, business attorneys, faculty entrepreneurs, and industrial leaders. It is expected the workshop/panel discussion will attract a significant number of international participants, especially from Asian countries and Australia. This workshop/panel discussion is a platform where biomaterial excellence finds exit to technology translation and a networking opportunity for friendship and collaboration with Chinese-American/Chinese faculty, students, and thought leaders in the field.
Meet the Editors of Wiley's Biomaterials Journals:
Meet the Editors of the official journals of the SFB (Journal of Biomedical Materials Research Part A and Journal of Biomedical Materials Research Part B: Applied Biomaterials), as well as Wiley Advanced journals. You will hear about publication opportunities for Biomaterials papers at Wiley. The Editors will present which articles they are looking for in their journals, the publication workflow and how peer review works. This interactive session is the place to ask all your questions around getting your work published.
If I Were a Student Now: Life Lessons from Experts in Academia and Industry:
Ever wonder how leaders in the field got to where they are today? Join us for a panel discussion with current leaders in the field of biomaterials and healthcare product development for a historical perspective on their fields, how they developed leadership and project management skills in their careers, and what they would do if they were a graduate student today. We will explore the skillsets that help you succeed in both academia and industry.
