BIOtech Seminar Series - Spring Session

Mar 2021
AST - TERMIS Webinar Series
Joining Forces to Shape Our Mutual Future
The American Society of Transplantation (AST) and the Tissue Engineering and Regenerative Medicine International Society, Inc. (TERMIS)
AST and TERMIS recognize to be pursuing overlapping objectives and are now coming together to launch a new webinar series.
The immediate short-term goal of the webinars is to establish a collaboration between the two societies, who are leaders in their respective fields of transplant and regenerative medicine.
The medium-term term goal of the webinars is to prepare the ground to a new conference series, the World Conference of Transplant and Regenerative Medicine that will be launched once we will have left the COVID pandemic behind us.
The long-term goal of the webinars (and of the new conference series) is to bring together experts from both fields on the same stage for the first time, in order to share knowledge and ultimately foster progress in organ bioengineering, regeneration and repair which will shape and define the future of both worlds.
The webinars will be held quarterly and will consist of a 1-hour session, featuring two speakers, one proposed by each society.
The first webinar will occur on March 16th at 7:00 AM Pacific Time / 10:00 AM Eastern Time U.S.
Our first two speakers will be:
Dr. Giuseppe Orlando
"The AST-TERMIS Effort:
How We Got Here and Why"
Dr. Stephen Badylak
"Clinical Application and Translation of ECM-Based Biologic Scaffolds for Functional Tissue and Organ Replacement"

TERMIS-EU Lab Tour Series
In the current global COVID situation, the ability to visit research groups/labs to cultivate new collaborative opportunities has been restricted. To overcome this challenge a new initiative has been developed, the TERMIS Lab Tour Webinar Series 2021, which will provide online webinars that are of a slightly different flavor, to understand how research groups/labs in the field operate. These webinars will comprise of a video tour of the research groups labs and facilities, followed by a selection of presentations from the Head of the Institute, Head of Research Group or Lead PI of Research Group and early career researchers (PhD students or postdocs). There will be an opportunity at the end of the presentations to meet with the host participants and discuss specific topics further. The webinars will be 1hr 30mins in total and are aimed towards generating general interest, collaboration exposure, early career researcher training and interest, and scientific gain. This will be a wonderful opportunity to see how other labs operate, the specialized skill-sets they contain and understanding how others manage their science.
The first webinar of the series will be hosted by Prof. Johannes Grillari, Director of the Ludwig Boltzmann Institute, Vienna, Austria and Prof. Heinz Redl, Director Emeritus on 15th March at 4pm CET.
We would encourage any research groups who are interested in hosting future webinars to contact Dr. Ciara Murphy and Dr. Michael Monaghan.
