    Special Seminar

    Speaker 1: Professor Dietmar Hutmacher, Queensland University of Technology

    Talk title: Scaffold-Based Tissue Engineering – From bench to bedside back to bench

    Venue: Seminar room 355, James Watt Building

    Bio: Prof Hutmacher is a biomedical engineer, an educator, an inventor, and a creator of new intellectual property opportunities. He directs the Centre for Regenerative Medicine and the ARC Training Centre in Additive Biomanufacturing at QUT, a multidisciplinary team of researchers including engineers, cell biologists, polymer chemists, clinicians, and veterinary surgeons. DProf Hutmacher is an internationally recognized leader in the fields of biomaterials, tissue engineering and regenerative medicine with expertise in commercialization. He has translated a bone tissue engineering concept from the laboratory through to clinical application involving in vitro experiments, in vivo preclinical animal studies and ultimately clinical trials. His recent research efforts have resulted in traditional scientific/academic outputs as well as pivotal commercialisation outcomes. His pre-eminent international standing and impact on the field are illustrated by his publication record (more than 300 journal articles, edited 14 books, 70 book chapters and some 500 conference papers) and citation record (google scholar, more than  44,000 citations, h-index of 104 ).
