Invited by Prof. Jiang Chang of Shanghai Institute of Ceramics, Chinese Academy of Sciences(SICCAS), Prof. Charles James Kirkpatrick from Johannes Gutenberg University visited SICCAS on 1st December, 2015, and gave the lecture entitled “Developing Complex Culture Techniques for Tissue Engineering and Regenerative Medicine “.

Prof. Kirkpatrick presented his recent studies on complex culture techniques used in tissue engineering and regenerative medicine, which attracted great interests of the attendees. Healing processes are a highly regulated series of biological activities in the so-called regenerative niche to restore structural and functional integrity, and involve the coordinated and sequential release of numerous biological signals from various cell types. Based on the working hypothesis that cells are the Nature’s prime signal delivery systems, Prof. Kirkpatrick tried to understand the underlying mechanisms of cellular crosstalk by establishing suitable human co-culture models. After the lecture, Prof. Kirkpatrick visited the lab of Biomaterials and Tissue Engineering Group.

Prof. Kirkpatrick has a triple doctorate in science and medicine (MD, PhD, DSc) from the Queen’s University of Belfast (N. Ireland) and is an emeritus Professor of Pathology at the University Medical Center in Mainz, Germany. He is the former President of both the German Society for Biomaterials (2001-2005) and the European Society for Biomaterials (ESB, 2002-2007). He is a Fellow of the Royal College of Pathologists (FRCPath), London (since 1997) and an Honorary Professor at the Peking Union Medical College in Beijing and the Sichuan University in Chengdu, China (both since 2004). In addition, he receives visiting professorships at the South China University of Technology in Guangzhou, the Nanyang Technological University (NTU) in Singapore and the Sahlgrenska Academy of the University of Gothenburg, Sweden. His main research interests are biomaterials in tissue engineering and regenerative medicine, with special focus on human co-culture systems.
