Brendan Robb, PhD student from the Neotherix-supported CASE project with Professor Sandra Downes from the School of Materials, University of Manchester, will be presenting research findings at two conferences in late May/early June. Brendan will be speaking on "Optimising the electrospinning process for the production of biocompatible scaffolds" at Electrospin 2012 in Jeju, Korea and will then go on to the 9th World Biomaterials Congress in Chengdu, China where he will present a poster on "Optimising electrospun biodegradable scaffolds to encourage specific tissue regeneration". Data to be presented has been gathered over the two years this project has been running during which the influence of a number of process parameters on the morphology, properties and uniformity of electrospun tissue scaffolds has been studied. The application of precise process conditions to obtain scaffolds with properties specific to the regeneration of a particular tissue is the overall objective of this project.
