In it’s 4th year, this highly focused conference will provide the biotech community with state-of-the-art research for tissue and genetic engineering. Significant advancements in stem cell technologies for cartilage repair and successful gene transfer into chondrocytes have resulted in valuable commercial opportunities within the field of regenerative medicine. Furthermore, the latest
developments in scaffold design optimization and Magnetic Resonance Imaging for tissue engineering will be presented, including such topics as:
• Assessing Cartilage Function in Human Joints
• Applied Deformational Loading
• Quantitative Imaging Analysis of Chondrocyte Responses
• Development of an MRI-Compatible Bioreactor
• Chondrogenesis with a Novel Self-Assembling Peptide Scaffold
• 3-D Osteochondral Scaffold for Cartilage Repair
• Gene Transfer into Articular Cartilage
• Rejection of Xenogeneic Cartilage
• Stem Cell Therapy for Bone and Joint Repair
• Cellular Alternatives for Articular Cartilage Repair
• Stem Cell Driven Regeneration of Articular Condyle
• Reprogramming Human Mature Adult Cells to Pluripotent Cells
