“Correcting aberrations in tissue formation using materials: From scarring to pathological ossification” with Professor Liam Grover, from the School of Chemical Engineering at the University of Birmingham.

Localised changes in tissue structure can lead to a significant reduction in a tissue’s ability to function. Deposition of irregular arrays of collagen in the cornea, for example, result in reductions in transparency and sight loss. We are working on new ways to prevent and/or resolve these conditions using materials to deliver matrix modifying agents or by tailoring materials so that they can modify biological behaviour themselves. This talk will cover a range of conditions from skin and ocular scarring to pathological ossification.
