Tissue Engineering: Where Medicine and Engineering Merge

May 23, 2012 - 13:00-14:00

Dr. Ashok Kumar, Professor of Bioengineering at the Department of Biological Sciences and Bioengineering, Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Kanpur, Kanpur, holds a guest lecture at Lund University on Wednesday 23 May. 
Tissue Engineering is an interdisciplinary field that utilizes the principles of engineering and medical sciences towards the development of tissue/organ substitutes that maintain, restore, or improve their function. It is a unique subject where medicine and engineering have a real integration. Based on these merging concepts, tissue engineering has evolved today as an emerging field of medical sciences, where it has helped people achieve better health care possibilities. 

Ashok Kumar received his Ph.D in Biotechnology in 1994 jointly from Institute of Genomics and Integrative Biology, Delhi and Indian Institute of Technology, Roorkee, India. He conducted his postdoctoral research at IIT Delhi, Nagoya University, Japan and Lund University, Sweden. He worked as faculty of Biotechnology at BITS Pilani, and at the Department of Biotechnology, Lund University. He also served as a co-coordinator for the center for Bioseparation in the area of nano/microparticle separations in Sweden during the period 2001-2004.
 Venue: Dora Jacobsohn lecture hall, Biomedical Centre (BMC), entrance D 15, Klinikgatan 32, Lund.
