Principal Investigator, Head of Liver Regeneration & Tissue Engineering Group, Institute of Hepatology, Foundation for Liver Research

Senior Lecturer (Adj), Kings College London


I have a background in the use of stem cells and natural-derived scaffolds to construct artificial organs for transplantation and disease modelling. Since completing my PhD in Tissue Engineering and Regenerative Medicine, I have worked on stem cell therapy and the development of artificial oesophagus, skeletal muscle, intestine, lung and liver.

London Liver Regenerative Medicine Network meeting

This is the second Workshop of the London Liver Regenerative Medicine Network, which is being planned for Thursday 31st October 2019 at the Institute of Hepatology London.

The aim of the Network is to provide a platform for the London Liver Regenerative Medicine research community and facilitate inter/multidisciplinary collaboration across the London Universities and Institutes. The half-day Workshop will highlight the current research in hepatic regenerative medicine and tissue engineering, including cell therapy, organ-on-a-chip, bio-artificial hepatic systems and stem cell biology, to discuss the challenges and future directions for the progression of this field and identify research opportunities for collaborations.

The meeting will include two Keynote Sessions and two Bright Sparks Sessions with shorter talks.
