Project: UVA Advanced Biomanufacturing Symposium
Type: Outreach and Education Activity
Partners: Center for Advanced Manufacturing at the University of Virginia (UVA), BioFabUSA, National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST)
On November 4–5, 2018, the 3rd Annual UVA Advanced Biomanufacturing Symposium will bring together experts from industry, government, non-profits, and academia to discuss foundational research, technology development, and product commercialization needed to foster an advanced U.S. biomanufacturing industry. Over the course of the 2-day event, symposium speakers and panelists will discuss ongoing research in biofabrication and cell manufacturing, government funding and regulatory considerations for biomanufactured tissues and organs, standards for evaluating biomanufactured cells and tissues, and clinical implementation of regenerative medicine products.
SCB is helping to both identify speakers and organize a session on standards for manufacturing and imaging.
Plan Symposium Content: SCB has participated in planning meetings and calls with the organizers and sponsors about symposium development and promotion.
Identify Session Speakers: SCB has helped to identify speakers for a session related to standards for manufacturing and imaging. Those participating in the session will outline industrial standards and methods for evaluating biomanufactured cells and tissues (e.g., imaging and other biosensing techniques).
