The Southeast Workshop on Tissue Engineering and Biomaterials

January 29-30, 2004

Sutherland was a proud sponsor of The Southeast Workshop on Tissue Engineering and Biomaterials, a newly organized annual event that is conducted at a different southeastern location each year. The 2004 workshop was held at Clemson University. The mission of the workshop is to foster collaborations between southeastern universities that are involved in biomaterials research and tissue engineering, to establish an educational workshop that will travel to participating university campuses, to provide a forum to showcase faculty and student research, and to establish liaison activities with local and international companies interested in biomaterials and tissue engineering.

This year's workshop commenced with keynote speaker, Dr. Ioannis Yannas, Professor of Mechanical Engineering at MIT, member of the National Academy of Sciences and the Institute of Medicine. Dr. Yannas spoke about the genesis of tissue engineering and the contribution of biomaterials to this field. There was a poster session and reception on the evening preceding the day-long workshop which highlighted the evolution of various forms of biomaterials in tissue engineering applications, exploring the use of natural and synthetic biomaterials in the context of tissue engineering. The second day of the workshop consisted of 20 minute podium presentations provided by senior faculty, junior faculty and students from the participating universities and companies.

The annual workshop will provide an opportunity to establish connections within universities as well as other regional universities and companies, with a new host site for each workshop.  The workshop will follow a similar program format (poster, keynote, and podium sessions), designed by the host institution. The Georgia Tech/Emory Center for the Engineering of Living Tissues in Atlanta, Georgia, will be the anchor institution to ensure the continuation of this program and assist the workshop host institutions.
