LINK-J & UC San Diego Joint Webinar Series #5 with Osaka University

2021-2-10 (Wed) 10:00 - 11:00

"Mechano-Driven Functionalization of Engineered Tissues" Session 2 Biofabrication


UC San Diego and LINK-J have co-hosted a series of seminars inviting top UCSD researchers to Japan every year.

This year, instead, we will be holding a series of joint webinars with top researchers from both UCSD and Japanese universities.

UC San Diego and Osaka University have a long history of collaborations in education and research. In recent years, we have strived to expand our areas of collaboration to include bioengineering, bioinformatics, tissue engineering, and regenerative medicine. LINK-J and UC San Diego are pleased to offer two joint webinars, in cooperation with the Osaka University Global Center for Medical Engineering and Informatics (MEI Center), at which investigators from both institutions will present recent work in “Biofabrication” (Session 2).
