PhD student attends international Tissue Engineering conference

Grace Walden, a PhD student in Dr Aram Saeed’s lab, recently attended her first international conference hosted by the Tissue Engineering and Regenerative Medicine International Society (TERMIS) in Davos, Switzerland. The conference was attended by over 1000 scientists from across the globe with 350+ oral presentations, 60 keynotes, 66 invited speakers and four world renowned plenary lecturers.

Grace was able to present the most recent work in the Saeed lab carried out by herself, recent undergraduate project student Lawrence Farrell, a visiting researcher Timo Risch and Noelia Dominguez-Falcon. The work is on the formation of disulphide containing microparticles for the encapsulation of cells and proteins.

During the conference Grace’s most recent review publication (DOI: 10.1089/ten.TEB.2016.0181) was referenced during a talk in the tendon symposium. All abstracts from the conference have now been published on eCM.
