PhD student wins Best Oral Presentation at the 18th Annual Biomaterials and Tissue Engineering Meeting

Robert OwenPhD student Robert Owen awarded Best Oral Presentation at the 18th Annual Biomaterials and Tissue Engineering (BiTEG) Work in Progress Meeting 2016.

Held on Wednesday 14th December at Durham University, the BiTEG is a forum for those with an interest in: Cell and Tissue Engineering, Regenerative Medicine, Stem Cells and Biomaterials to come together and share recent results and ongoing research in a friendly environment.

Titled 'Bioreactors for Bone Tissue Engineering', Robert's oral presentation showcased the three different bioreactors he currently uses in the laboratory to enhance the culture, and study, of bone cells in order to improve bone tissue engineering.

It is the second time he was won the award, previously winning Best Oral Presentation at the 17th BiTEG meeting in York in 2015.

Congratulations Robert!
