The Science Park is launching an annual Christmas Lecture series. The inaugural lecture will be given by Prof. Richard Oreffo on Tuesday, 15th December at 5pm in the 2 Venture Road Conference Suite. Local residents are very welcome to attend. Tickets, priced at £5, only via Eventbrite.
Prof. Oreffo is Chair of Musculoskeletal Science and co-founder of the Centre for Human Development, Stem Cells and Regeneration at the University of Southampton. He and his team are developing unique techniques to combine stem cells with scaffolds to make a living composite for bone repair and application. In 2014 he was part of a team that used stem cell grafts to connect a 3D printed titanium hip to the damaged bone of a woman whose pelvis had been severely damaged in a car accident. More information on this work, and about the lecture, is available via the events page on the Science Park’s own website.
