Bioartificial Organs

Chair: Dimitrios Stamatialis

Mission Statement:

The working group will integrate and coordinate research, education and innovation activities in the field of bioartificial organs, which combine biomaterials with cells for developing organs to assist or replace failing patient organs.

The field of bioartificial organs requires close interaction of a broad range of disciplines spanning for biomaterials science and engineering to biology and medicine. The working group will include experts from all these disciplines and will organise regularly:

  • Symposia / sessions in various international conferences, including ESAO, ASAIO, Euromembrane, ESB and others, to promote the research activities in the field.
  • Training events for young researchers entering the field.
  • Outreach activities to promote the activities of the group to a broader audience.

Invitation to join the working Group if the following pre-requisites are fulfilled:
In the beginning I would like to set a small group, by invitation.
