From steel to stem cells – bone and joint repair and regeneration – Thursday 11th November 2015 6-8pm
Professor McCaskie, Professor of Orthopaedic Surgery & Research Director Division of Trauma and Orthopaedic Surgery
In his lecture, Andrew examines the next key advances in orthopaedic surgery by repairing or regenerating bone and joint tissues – often called tissue engineering or regenerative medicine. He will explore the progression from familiar materials currently used in joint replacement e.g. steel and plastic, towards advanced materials, molecules and cells that encourage repair in the body.
This lecture will also indicate how a bench to bedside research programme, building up clinical evidence, is key to successful adoption into healthcare.
Venue: The Martin Cohen Lecture Theatre, Li Ka Shing Centre, Cambridge Research Institute, Robinson Way, Cambridge, CB2 0RE
