Natural Polymers of bacterial origin and their use in Biomedical Applications

06/04/2020 | On Demand Webinar
Host: Prof. Ipsita Roy, Department of Materials Science & Engineering, University of Sheffield.

Professor Roy’s webinar will discuss her research on the synthesis of natural polymers from bacteria, such as Polyhydroxyalkanoates (PHAs) and their biomedical applications. She will outline the synthesis process, the benefits of such polymers and how they can be combined with bioprinting and other processing techniques to develop more physiologically relevant tissue models, tissue engineering scaffolds and medical implants.

Learn more about:
• The bioprinting workflow
• Modulating natural polymers for tissue specificity
• The impact within the medical field for such materials
