This Week's Presentation
This week's seminar series features Dr. Jingwei Xie, from the University of Nebraska Medical Center. Xie's presentation is titled "Engineering Novel Biomaterials for Biomedical Applications."
In this presentation, I will briefly talk about technologies we used in our lab for preparation of novel biomaterials. I will also illustrate several examples how to use the developed biomaterials to address clinical problems.
