“Functional Biomaterials for Tissue Regeneration” by Treena Livingston Arinzeh, PhD

Treena Livingston Arinzeh is a Professor of Biomedical Engineering at the New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT). Dr. Arinzeh received her B.S. from Rutgers University in Mechanical Engineering, her M.S.E. in Biomedical Engineering from Johns Hopkins University, and her Ph.D. in Bioengineering from the University of Pennsylvania. Her most notable work to date has been in the use of allogeneic mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) with bioactive ceramics to induce bone formation in a large bone defect without the use of immunosuppressive therapy. She will be discussing the fascinating methods scientists are working to regenerate tissue. She will be presenting studies examining the influence of biomaterials on stem cell behavior with an emphasis on identifying biomaterial properties and designs that impart appropriate cues to stem cells to affect their behavior both in vitro and in vivo.
