バイオフロンティア・シンポジウム2023

2023年12月16日 | バイオエンジニアリング部門対面開催International特別講演会No.23-233

【趣旨】

第34回バイオフロンティア講演会開催中に,英語による特別講演会を企画いたしました. 英語講演を聴講したことがない,あるいはほとんど経験がない学部生,大学院生,若手研究者らを対象に,英語に慣れ親しむ機会を提供することを目的としています.
今回は,2019年7月開催のバイオフロンティア・シンポジウム以来,4年ぶりとなる対面での講演です. 米国ワシントン大学よりYing Zheng先生をお招きし,バイオエンジニアリング分野の最先端の研究について平易に講演していただきます.対面ならではの臨場感を楽しんでください. 本シンポジウムは第1回(バイオフロンティア・シンポジウム2009,和歌山)から数えて14回目の開催となります.

Title:
Anatomical Reconstruction of Organ-specific Microvasculature and their Applications

Abstract:
Engineered tissues have emerged as promising new approaches for repairing damaged tissues and providing valuable platforms for drug testing and disease modeling. However, significant challenges remain, including 1) limited control over vascular architecture and perfusion efficiency, both crucial for replicating in vivo vascular function, and 2) a shortage of well-defined cell sources to mimic specific organ functions and facilitate translational outcomes. My lab has developed microvascular models over the past decade to investigate various vascular events in vitro and their integration in vivo. In this talk, I will present our latest advancement in constructing 1) vascular units of anatomical scale, considering vessel size, curvature, thickness, and organization, 2) organ-specific microvascular beds for disease modeling, and 3) kinase polypharmacology assays within 3D microvessels to identify kinase targets for blood brain barrier disruption. I will explore the potential of new microvascular engineering tools in advancing our understanding of vascular diseases and promoting the revascularization and regeneration of damaged tissue.

Short Bio:
Ying Zheng, Ph.D. received her BS degree from University of Science and Technology of China (USTC) in 2002 and Ph.D. degree in Biomedical Engineering of University of Michigan, Ann Arbor (2008). After she graduated, Dr. Zheng worked as a postdoctoral research associate with Prof. Abe Stroock at Cornell University. She joined UW Bioengineering in 2011 as a faculty and is now an Associate Professor in the Department of Bioengineering. Her research focuses on understanding and building fundamental structure and functions in living tissue and organ system. Selective awards include American Heart Association Scientist Development Award and NIH Director’s New Innovator Award.
