Let’s get personal: Orchestrating tissue development in Personalised and Regenerative Medicine
Getting “personal” with Tim during his IPL references his main basic science and translational research goals to orchestrate tissue development (specific to each patient’s needs, anatomy, disease type) for personalised medicine and regenerative medicine.
Tim’s IPL will describe his journey into science and engineering starting with his fascination in design and materials science, along with his involvement with Orthopaedic surgeons and University of Otago early-on in his undergraduate engineering degree in NZ. He will include key research achievements in cartilage tissue engineering and pioneering of 3D Printing and 3D Bio-printing technologies as a tool to orchestrate (stem) cell function and tissue development using biomaterials, leading to establishing the CReaTE Group and musculoskeletal regenerative medicine and 3D bio-printing at University of Otago Christchurch and in New Zealand over the last 15 years.
