Rice University held the 26th Annual Advances in Engineering Short Course from August 8-11, 2018. Over 100 attendees participated in the course traveling from over 15 different countries and representing both industry and academic institutions. Presentations covered topics ranging from synthetic tissue engineering scaffolds to succeeding at the NIH and strategic considerations for starting medical therapeutic companies. On August 9, the short course dedicated a day to biofabrication research and technologies featuring many of the Center for Engineering Complex Tissue’s researchers. The day ended with a special presentation on various 3D printing modalities and their applications in tissue engineering, followed by hands-on demonstrations and tours in the Biomaterials Lab.


With this year’s success, the Biomaterials Lab and the CECT look forward to participating in and supporting the 2019 course. Participants can look forward to more discussion on cutting edge techniques and research in the fabrication of complex tissues. For more information, stay tuned to: http://tissue.rice.edu/
