LINK-J & UC San Diego Joint Webinar Series #7 with Osaka University "Mechano-Driven Functionalization of Engineered Tissues" Session 3 Biomaterials/Nanomaterials

2021-5-21 (Fri) 09:00 - 10:15


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 a joint webinar, 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 “Biomaterials/Nanomaterials.”
