Lunch Symposium Rousselot

Don’t miss our lunch symposium on Biomedical Applications of Gelatins

Tuesday, 7th September 2021, 1:30 PM - 2:15 PM, Track 01

This symposium is held by:

We are proud to co-present a lunch symposium with Dr Jeroen Leijten, University of Twente, Enschede, Netherlands and our scientific expert Dr Jeff Daelman, in which the complexities and potential of gelatins for use in biomedical applications will be discussed.

Session discussion highlights include:

  • The unique properties of Gelatin for 3D bioprinting: The use of gelatin to stably incorporate nanoparticles into printable bio-inks.
  • The biocompatibility of Gelatin for use in regenerative medicines: The ability of gelatin to steer the behavior of immune cells such as macrophages towards a regenerative phenotype, or to endow bio-printed cartilage-like tissue constructs with spatially controlled mechanical properties.
  • The advantages of gelatin for use as a bio-adhesive: The chemical modification of gelatin to act as hemostatic bio-adhesive or implantable energy storage devices

Our expert Dr Jeff Daelman will share insights from our latest research into how a ‘clean’ gelatin can reduce experimental bias and allow for efficient clinical translation.
