Term 4 Week 3 – A/Prof Jelena Rnjak-Kovacina

Engineering a patch for your heart

Bioengineering cardiac patches with A/Prof Jelena Rnjak-Kovacina

Tuesday 18 Oct

2:00pm-3:00pm AEDST

Dr Jelena Rnjak-Kovacina is an Associate Professor and research fellow at the University of New South Wales (UNSW) in Sydney. Her research interests are at the interface of biology and engineering. Her research aims to understand the physical and biological cues that drive blood vessels to grow in tissues and to replicate these with biomaterials, so we can develop usable bioengineered tissues such as cardiac patches.

Join us to hear about Jelena’s journey to creating bioengineered tissues.

Facilitated by Adam Johnston, Macquarie University. Adam is part of the IMNIS Catalyst program.

Registrants will be sent a links and a worksheet related to the research prior to the session. Each session will include time for Q and A.
