Joel Segal's talk will focus on two main areas of manufacturing process development to support bioprinting activities and the electrospinning of cell scaffolds. His specific area of interest is in the application of design for manufacture principles to contribute to the clinical translation potential for these techniques.
Bio: Joel Segal's research interests are in micro and nano replication technologies, nanoscale fabrication and additive manufacture. His portfolio includes the generation of micro-structures for tissue engineering. He is currently supervising Ph.D. researchers in pharmaceutical device development, additive manufacturing, regenerative medicine, phosphate glass coatings for implants, bioresorbable implant development, porous spinal implant development and advanced metrology. He is a co-investigator in the EPSRC Centre for Innovative Manufacture in Regenerative Medicine and a co-investigator in the EPSRC Centre for Innovative Manufacture in Medical Devices (MeDeInnovation). He was previously successfully involved in the NanoCom (an EU FP7 Coordinated Action on commercialisation of Nanotechnology) and MINAM 2.0 (an EU FP7 Coordinated Action on micro and nano manufacturing) EU projects. He has held two Bridging the Gaps awards for collaborative research with colleagues in Physics, Microbiology & Nursing, Midwifery and Physiotherapy. Segal has several peer-reviewed publications, has presented at international conferences worldwide, contributed to a book on Rapid Prototyping case studies and is a contributor to the annual state of the industry Additive Manufacturing report produced by Terry Wohlers. His expertise assisted the recent development of a novel hand hygiene training device for children.
