Jason A. Burdick, Professor of Bioengineering at the University of Pennsylvania, will give a seminar entitled "Scaffold Fabrication For Musculoskeletal Tissue Repair: From Fibers To 3D Printing" on Tuesday, May 8, at 3:30 PM, in 140 DeBartolo Hall.
Dr. Burdick’s research involves the development of hydrogels through techniques such as photocrosslinking and self-assembly and through processing using approaches such as electrospinning and 3D printing. The applications of his research range from controlling stem cell differentiation through material cues to fabricating scaffolding for regenerative medicine and tissue repair.
Jason currently has over 220 peer-reviewed publications and has been awarded a K22 Scholar Development and Career Transition Award through the National Institutes of Health, an Early Career Award through the Coulter Foundation, a National Science Foundation CAREER award, a Packard Fellowship in Science and Engineering, and an American Heart Association Established Investigator Award. He is on the editorial boards of Tissue Engineering, Biofabrication, and Journal of Biomedical Materials Research A, and is an Associate Editor for ACS Biomaterials Science & Engineering.
