Main topics

Starting from 1990 up to 2013 in Faenza and successively in Rome (2015-2016), in Genova (2017) and in Milan (2018), we engineered and disseminated inert prostheses first and bioactive and biocompatible ones later on.
During the last years, partially re-adsorbable compositions were proposed, together with as compatible as possible with living tissues composites. Today, thanks to nanoscience and genetics, it is possible to carry out systematic studies on the nature of living tissues, with detailed information about the opportunity to promote new materials (composites) thanks to differentiating cells in replacement of the damaged and/or lost ones.
The main analytical techniques for the characterization of composites’ defects are microscopy, ultrasounds, microradiography, tomography, mechanical analyses, etc.
The International Conference will revolve specifically around templates able to host cells and interpret their electric and electromagnetic signals, and suitable to join a correct genetic activity.
A complete suggested project will be discussed with the participants to try and put together all the interested medical disciplines, to understand as best as possible the evolution of our tissues during aging.

Main topics, round table and symposium:
–    Biomaterials-cells interactions: how cells communicate with each other
•    Dialogue between gut and brain

Short Biography

Professor of Biomaterials & Tissue Engineering and Materials Science and Technology, Member of the Research and Projects Committee, and of the PhD School Board, at University of Rome “Niccolò Cusano”, with consolidated expertise in the synthesis and characterization of (bio)materials and eco-sustainable systems. She graduated in Medical Engineering at the University of Rome “Tor Vergata” (Master of Science Award ‘Fondazione Raeli’). Afterwards, she completed the Ph.D in Materials Engineering (Ph.D Thesis Award ‘Marco Ramoni 2011, Ph.D Thesis AIMAT Award 2012) and she obtained the II Level Master degrees in “Forensic Genetics” and in “Protection against CBRNe events”. She is expert in the synthesis, processing and characterisation of biocompatible nanostructured materials, particularly for applications in the biomedical, environmental and agri-food sectors, including bioceramics (undoped and doped calcium phosphates, bioactive glasses), biopolymers and composites. She is reviewer for more than 100 peer-review journals, e.g. Acta Biomaterialia, Biofabrication, Chemical Engineering Journal, has been/is Guest Editor of several Special issues, and is a member of the Editorial Board of several international journals, including Applied Science-MDPI, Applied Surface Science Advances-Elsevier, Biomedical glasses-DE GRUYTER OPEN, Frontiers in Biomaterials, Open Journal of Materials Science-Bentham Science, Recent Patents on Materials Science-Bentham Science, The Open Materials Science Journal-Bentham Open, Reviews on Advanced Materials Science-DE GRUYTER OPEN, and serves on various grant review committees, such as National Science Foundation (NSF), Canada Foundation for Innovation (CFI) and National Science Center (NCN, NARODOWE CENTRUM NAUKI).

National Taiwan University - Taipei

Short Biography
Dr. Feng-Huei Lin was born in 1957 in Taiwan. He obtained his BS degree in Department of Earth Sciences, National Cheng Kung University (NCKU), Taiwan, in 1980.
In early 1990, Dr. Lin was recruited as an associate professor in Centre for Biomedical Engineering, College of Medicine, National Taiwan University (NTU); where he started his academic career. In 1997, he was promoted to the full professor. He organized to setup the Institute of Biomedical Engineering in NTU and served as acting director in the institute (1997-1999). Afterwards, Dr. Lin was invited to be the first director in Department of Biomedical Engineering of NTU-hospital with engineering background (2003-2005). Then he returned to Institute of Biomedical Engineering, NTU, as director (2005-2008). Assigned by National Science Council, Taiwan Dr. Lin made the budget allocation and future 10-year financial plan as the Convenor of Biomedical Division (2006-2009). Then Dr. Lin transferred to Division of Biomedical Engineering, National Health Research Institutes (NHRI), as the director and took charge of the development of biomaterials and tissue engineering (2008-2012). Now, he is the distinguished professor in NTU, chair professor in National Taipei University of Technology, executive editor of Journal of Biomedical Engineering and international fellow of International College of Biomaterials Sciences and Engineering.
Dr Lin has served as standing committee members in many international societies since 1996. He was the permanent international advisory board in Ceramic, Cell and Tissue (CCT) (1998-2010); and served as the President in 2010. He was one of the standing committee members in WACBE (2005-) and council member in TERMIS-AP Chapter (2009-2011). He also served as editorial board members in many SCI journals, e.g. Biomaterials, International Journal of Biomaterials, International Journal of Biomaterial Research and Engineering, Journal of Musculoskeletal Research etc..
Since 1990, Dr Lin has published over 409 SCI papers, joined 9 book chapters, awarded 69 patents and transferred 20 technologies to industry. His research is in scaffold for tissue engineering, nano-technology for drug and gene delivery, bio-nano-science for cancer hyperthermia, biomaterials for stem cell research, and hydrogel for vitreous body substitute. He is willing to involve in collaborations with researchers and scientists from different fields; and dedicates to mentoring young scientists. With his integrated experiences both in academic research and industry, Dr. Lin is devoting to promote the research achievements to commercial product.
