Skin Tissue Engineering
On the 28th of November, at 5:30pm, there will be a seminar on skin tissue engineering. This seminar will address the current state-of-the-art in skin tissue engineering as well as top-notch strategies for bioprinting of skin substitutes. Current tissue engineered skin fails to meet the need for skin replacement in full-thickness wounds. Bioprinting technology allows for organization of multiple cell types into biomimetic layers.

The webinar will be held via Zoom.
Adam M. Jorgensen
Adam M. Jorgensen is an M.D./Ph.D. Candidate and NIH/NIAMS F30 NRSA Fellow working in the Atala lab at the Wake Forest Institute for Regenerative Medicine. His research focuses on 3D bioprinting skin for full-thickness wound healing. His other research pursuits include the generation of a novel spherical skin organoid for in vitro drug testing and dermatologic disease modeling, the use of both cellular and acellular hydrogels and scaffolds for wound healing applications, and biofabrication of hair follicles. He is an NIH/NIAMS F30 NRSA fellowship recipient for his thesis research on “Integration and remodeling of bioprinted skin in full-thickness wound healing.” His findings to date have resulted in two first-author publications, including one featured as the current cover of Tissue Engineering, Part A; 11 peer-reviewed abstracts with associated presentations at local, national, and international conferences; and eight research awards, including the 2019 Tissue Engineering and Regenerative Medicine International Society–AM Mary Ann Liebert, Inc. Outstanding Student Award and an invited participant at the 2020 Society for Investigative Dermatology Future Leaders Post-Doctoral Retreat, all within the first year of this NIAMS F30 NRSA fellowship.
