Tissue Engineering
Professor William J. Landis, Ph.D,
G. Stafford Whitby Chair in Polymer Science

In the past 20 years since its inception, the field of tissue
engineering has developed into an extremely large and exciting research arena supporting a wide spectrum of basic science studies and medical applications for treating patients with a variety of difficult health problems.
Tissue engineering is interdisciplinary in its scope and combines in part fundamental principles from chemistry, biology, physics, mathematics, and biomaterials engineering. It is now a multi-million dollar undertaking in public universities, governmental institutions, and private colleges and industries worldwide, having a major overarching goal -- designing parts of the human body that can be used to augment, repair or replace tissues that are missing, damaged or otherwise impaired. At the moment, tissue
engineering has developed models of aorta, bladder, skin, breast, muscle, and a host of other tissues and organs, illustrating that the field has great potential in plastic and reconstructive surgery, internal medicine, cardiology, and many additional clinical specialties. The work in my own laboratory group has involved bone and cartilage among tissue-engineered constructs and the presentation here will demonstrate some results of our advances in fabricating fingers and ears. Further, selected examples of
related bone and cartilage investigations reported by other groups and the recent development of 3D printing for tissue engineering will be given.
The tissue engineering field continues as a strong and novel paradigm in medicine and health.

DINNER RESERVATIONS REQUIRED:Reservations can be made to Walter Salamant, by Noon, Wednesday, September 14. The cost is $25 for professionals and
$10 for students.
