ESAO/TERMIS-EU Winter School 2021 - February 24-26th, 2021

The next Winter School was initially planned to be held in the town of Jaca, Spain the first capital of the Kingdom of Aragon and a skiing hotspot in the Pyrenees. However, the current pandemic situation made us switch it to an ONLINE event. This year’s school is centered on “The Bionic Human: Biomaterials, (Bio)Artificial and Bioengineered Organs, and Cybernetics for the Future of Regenerative Medicine”. It will cover, in a bottom-up approach, 1) the fundamentals in biomaterial science, stem cells and organoids that are making possible the creation and implantation of more complex structures like 2) (bio)artificial and bioengineered organs, and 3) cybernetic parts, enabling the future of regenerative medicine and the generation of Bionic Humans. As usual, we count with a strong and diverse program with internationally acclaimed scientists. As keynote speakers, we will have Dr. Anthony Atala from the Wake Forest Institute for Regenerative Medicine, a pioneer in translational regenerative medicine, and Neil Harbisson, the first legal human cyborg, from the United Kingdom read more
