With the emergence of an increasing amount of tools and approaches, Bone Tissue Engineering has become an important research topic at the crossroad of bone metabolism and regenerative medicine. In this joined ECTS-TERMIS workshop, we will enlighten the latest development in bone tissue engineering. Professor Pamela Habibobivic and Dr David Browe (TBC) will discuss the engineering of instructive biomaterials and the use of decellularized scaffolds for use in tissue engineering, respectively. Professor Geert Carmeliet will introduce skeletal cell types and their fate and function in the context of bone healing and tissue engineering. Finally, Dr Greet Kerckhofs (TBC) will provide an overview of imaging modalities to screen and perform quality assessment of tissue engineered products. The combination of topics presented and distinguished speakers from the field promises this BTE workshop to be highly educational and interactive to members of the ECTS and TERMIS communities.
