MizzouForward Keynote – Engineering Novel Biomedical Materials
January 25th | 2:00pm – 3:00pm
Ketcham Auditorium – W1005 Lafferre Hall
College of Engineering
Join us for “Engineering Novel Biomedical Materials" a keynote presentation by College of Engineering, MizzouForward faculty candidate, Dr. Jingwei Xie. Dr. Xie will present on his research for approximately 40-minutes with a 20-minute question and answer session to follow.
Dr. Jingwei Xie is a professor (with tenure) in the Mary & Dick Holland Regenerative Medicine Program and Department of Surgery-Transplant at the University of Nebraska Medical Center. Dr. Xie completed his bachelor and master’s degrees in chemical engineering at Nanjing University of Technology, China. He earned his PhD in the Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering from the National University of Singapore, Singapore.
Over the past two decades, electrospinning has emerged as an enabling nanotechnology to produce nanofiber materials for various biomedical applications. In particular, therapeutic/cell-loaded nanofiber scaffolds have been widely examined in drug delivery, wound healing, and tissue repair and regeneration. However, due to the insufficient porosity, small pore size, noninjectability, and inaccurate spatial control in nanofibers of scaffolds, many efforts have been devoted to exploring new forms of nanofiber materials including expanded nanofiber scaffolds, nanofiber aerogels, short nanofibers, and nanofiber microspheres. Dr. Xie’s talk will discuss the preparation and potential biomedical applications of new forms of nanofiber materials.
