Biomedical Engineering Seminar Series
Start Date: 2/4/2015Start Time: 4:00 PM
End Date: 2/4/2015

Event Description:

Speaker: Michael Detamore, Professor of Chemical & Petroleum Engineering, University of Kansas

Topic: Gradients and Raw Materials in Tissue Engineering

Professor Detamore's areas of expertise include tissue engineering, biomaterials, stem cells and biomechanics. Biomaterials approaches include microsphere-based scaffolds, interpenetrating network hydrogels, colloidal gels, and electrospinning. Stem cell efforts are focused on umbilical cord stem cells in general and on gene delivery in particular. Early biomechanics studies were focused on temporomandibular joint (TMJ) cartilages, and more recently, attention has been focused on consolidating testing methods for mechanical failure studies of cartilage and hydrogels. In terms of tissue engineering and regenerative medicine efforts, the primary focus is on bone and cartilage regeneration, including the TMJ, knee, cranium, and trachea. In addition, Detamore's group is also exploring a collaboration in cochlea inner ear hair cell regeneration for hearing restoration.
