2nd Belgian Symposium on Tissue Engineering (BSTE) 2013

  • Conference Call
  • It is our great plea­sure to announce the 2nd Bel­gian Sym­po­sium on Tis­sue Engi­neer­ing (BSTE) 2013, themed “micro to Macro: trans­lat­ing between scales” tak­ing place Octo­ber 24 — 25, 2013 in Leu­ven, Bel­gium.

    This two-​day national sym­po­sium is organ­ised by “Prometheus” – the Leu­ven Research & Devel­op­ment Divi­sion of Skele­tal Tis­sue Engi­neer­ing of the KU Leu­ven and aims to bring together sci­en­tists nation­wide to dis­cuss front­line research in the rapidly expand­ing field of tis­sue engi­neer­ing and regen­er­a­tive med­i­cine. This will be stream­lined with a com­bi­na­tion of six ple­nary lec­tures by world renowned sci­en­tists pre­sent­ing their lat­est find­ings, tech­no­log­i­cal tools and opin­ions on a strate­gic plan for the devel­op­ment and man­u­fac­tur­ing of tis­sue engi­neer­ing (TE) prod­ucts for effec­tive tis­sue repair. This event also serves as ini­tial contact/​meeting plat­form to pro­mote sci­en­tific net­work­ing and poten­tial research col­lab­o­ra­tions at both national and inter­na­tional levels.

    ESF Travel Grants

    Dead­line: Sep­tem­ber 1st, 2013

    Par­tic­i­pants orig­i­nat­ing from ESF mem­ber coun­tries can apply for an ESF travel grant. Travel and acco­mo­da­tion costs up to 500€/applicant can be refunded for 20 par­tic­i­pants. Appli­ca­tions will be received until the 1st of Sep­tem­ber after which the organ­is­ing comi­tee will assign the avail­able grants accord­ing to the rules of the ESF after which the selected appli­ca­tions will be noti­fied. Sim­ply send us your appli­ca­tion along with your CV to info.​bste@​kuleuven.​be.

    Main top­ics and awards

    • iPS tech­nol­ogy and its promise for Tis­sue Engineering
    • Bio­mimetic microen­vi­ron­ment engineering
    • Clin­i­cal translation
    • Imag­ing for bio­log­i­cal quantification
