Volume No 11- Supplement 3
Annual meeting of the Tissue and Cell Engineering Society (TCES)
3-4 July 2006, University of Sheffield
The University of Sheffield is proud to host the TCES annual meeting in 2006. This is the first time that the Society has met in Sheffield and the need for a new venue illustrates a continued increase in tissue and cell engineering research in the UK. The invitation for the meeting went out at the beginning of the year to previous members and attendees of the TCES and was also publicised on the website. Invited speakers this year include James Kirkpatrick, Chris Jacobs, Sheila MacNeil, and Sandy Williams.
The committee were interested in attracting oral, poster and oral-poster presentations that covered new and developing areas in tissue engineering. Accordingly, we themed the conference across scaffolds and 3-D models, mechanobiology, translational research, bioreactors, imaging and emerging topics.
We hope that you enjoyed the scientific sessions and also left with the impression that TCES is a dynamic society spanning research at the life-sciences interface. It is intended that the society supports young researchers to develop their interests and enables all researchers to interact readily with industry. We also hope that delegates enjoyed Sheffield as a new venue for TCES.
