15.02.2023 SSFB/TRR 225 Seminar: Building Human Myocardium in the Lab Through Computational Biomechanics, 3D Printing, and hiPSCs with Dr. Manuel M. Mazo-Vega

By 15. February 2023May 4th, 2023Events

SFB/TRR 225 “From the fundamentals of biofabrication towards functional tissue models” Seminar Series 2023 continued with a talk by Dr. Manuel M. Mazo Vega on February 15th, 2023. Dr. Vega is affiliated with the Clínica & Cima Universidad de Navarra and the Transversal Program of Regenerative Medicine in Pamplona, Spain. He gave a talk titled “Computational Biomechanics, 3D Printing, and hiPSCS: Building Human Myocardium in the Lab Through Unraveling Nature’s Design Specifications.”

During the talk, Dr. Vega discussed the use of computational biomechanics, 3D printing, and hiPSCs (human induced pluripotent stem cells) to build human myocardium in the laboratory. He shared his team’s research on understanding the design specifications of the heart, and how it can be used to build functional human heart tissue that can be used for various applications.

Dr. Vega received his PhD in Biomedical Engineering from the University of Navarra, Spain. He has worked on several interdisciplinary projects related to tissue engineering and regenerative medicine, with a focus on heart tissue engineering. Currently, he is a member of the Transversal Program of Regenerative Medicine, where he continues to advance the field of regenerative medicine through his research.

The SFB/TRR 225 Seminar Series is a joint effort between the University of Würzburg and the University of Bayreuth and Erlangen. The seminar series invites leading researchers from the field of biofabrication and tissue engineering to share their knowledge and latest findings. The series aims to promote interdisciplinary research in this rapidly growing field.

Guests are welcome to attend the SFB/TRR 225 Seminar Series talks, which take place both in-person and online. For more information on upcoming seminars, please visit the SFB/TRR 225 website.
