Sara S. Nunes de Vasconcelos is a scientist at the Toronto General Hospital Research Institute as part of the University Health Network, and an Associate Professor at the University of Toronto.
She leads the laboratory for cardiovascular research and regeneration. Her group is interested in uncovering the principles that govern vascularization during organ regeneration for application in regenerative medicine. Furthermore, her team combines tissue engineering approaches with revascularization techniques to develop complex tissues for in vivo applications, and is interested in developing personalized “microvasculature-on-a-chip” devices by combining advances in microfluidics and “organ-on-a-chip” technology.
The Berlin Center for Translational Vascular Biomedicine, jointly founded by the Berlin Institute of Health (BIH), Charité Universitätsmedizin Berlin and the Max Delbrück Center for Molecular Medicine (MDC) in the Helmholtz Association, represents an interdisciplinary scientific network with the pronounced aim to foster translation in the field of vascular biomedicine. It unites leading scientific knowledge with clinical expertise and thereby promotes the transfer of scientific insights to clinical use.
Pursuing its mission, the Center initiated the Lecture Series “Vascular Networking” to invite distinguished experts and promote international scientific exchange to both enrich the Berlin scientific community and provide the foundation for new and visionary collaborations.
The lecture series is conducted in an online-format and attracts a broad audience from the wider Berlin community. The online event will comprise a 45 min talk and a 15 min open discussion followed by a 1 hour closed exchange with 3-4 interested experts. These slots are allocated on a first come first served basis. If you are interested please indicate so on your event registration.
