Thought Leader: ICF Fellows Session: Debate: In-situ Approaches for Tissue Creation are Better than ex-vivo Approaches

Timeslot: Friday, April 5, 2019 - 10:30am to 12:30pm
Track: Thought Leader
Room: Skagit 4/5


This is a special session, organized by the International College of Fellows of Biomaterials Science and Engineering.  Following the model of a traditional British debate, a team of Fellows will argue that the creation of tissues in-situ is a better approach than the pre-assembly of tissues ex-vivo.  Another team will argue for the opposite. In the course of the debate, this fundamental choice in tissue engineering will be thoroughly illuminated from multiple angles and the audience will vote on which team provided the most convincing arguments.


Abstracts will be available for download on April 3, 2019.
