Seminar on "Biological Medical Devices and Stem Cells in Cardiovascular and Liver Tissue Engineering"

Speaker:Prof. Sathosh Mathpati,Translational Health Sciences and Technology Institute,NCR Biotech Science Cluster, Faridabad Hariyana.

Title: Biological Medical Devices and Stem Cells in Cardiovascular and Liver Tissue Engineering

Abstarct: Damage or loss of a tissue or organ is challenging health concerns due to extensive injury, the lack of organs for transplantation and limitations of conventional homografts, xenografts, or synthetic or mechanical prosthetic medical devices. These grafts, however, suffer from disadvantages such as lack of growth potential, have limited durability, and are associated with an increased incidence of repeated surgeries. The field of stem cell-based tissue engineering aims to provide alternative living substitutes that restore, maintain or improve tissue function. In this talk, I will present our results on (i) some of the aspects of our translational approaches in the development and characterisation of indigenous acellular tissue-engineered xenografts which help to bridge the gap from bench to bedside, (ii) strategies for three-dimensional (3D) human-induced pluripotent stem cell-derived human hepatic organoid using hyaluronic acid-based hydrogels and bioprinting technology for liver tissue engineering.

Speaker Bio: Santosh Mathapati received his PhD (2013) and a Master's degree in Biotechnology and Medical Biotechnology from IIT Madras, India respectively and a Bachelor’s degree in Veterinary Science from the Bombay Veterinary College, Mumbai. He joined as an Assistant Professor at Translational Health Science and Technology Institute, Faridabad, Haryana in July 2019. He did his postdoctoral fellowship from the University of Oslo, Oslo, Norway (2014-1017). He worked in the industry: Frontier Lifeline Hospital (Cardiac care hospital), Chennai, Synkromax Biotech Pvt Ltd (Medical device start-up), Chennai and HCL Technologies (as an SME Medical Device Biocompatibility), Chennai. He has diverse research experience in the fields ranging from the medical device, biomaterials science, tissue engineering, stem cell biology, microfabrication and veterinary science.
