CNIE PhD researcher Matthew Chin presents posters at two international conferences
11 July 2017
Matthew was awarded the Andrew Carnegie Research Fund from the Institute of Materials, Minerals and Mining (IOM3), and UCL’s School of Life and Medical Sciences (SLMS) Graduate Conference Fund to attend and present a poster at the TERMIS-EU (European Chapter Meeting of the Tissue Engineering and Regenerative Medicine International Society) Conference in June. TERMIS-EU is one of the leading conferences world-wide that focusses entirely on tissue engineering and regenerative medicine. The poster was entitled “A hydrogel-based platform for the ex vivo activation and expansion of immune cells”.
He is happy to also be presenting a further poster entitled “Biophysical fine-tuning of immune cell behaviour by using a biomaterial-based platform” at the Joint 19th International Union for Applied Biophysics (IUPAB) Congress and 11th European Biophysical Societies’ Association (EBSA) Congress which takes place 16th to 20th July. To attend and present at this conference, Matthew was awarded a Young Scientist Travel Award from IUPAB, a Wellcome Trust/British Biophysical Society Bursary, and a Research Student Conference Fund by the Biological Physics Group at the Institute of Physics (IoP).
