Terasaki Talks Presents: “Bone tissue engineering: What have we learned from bone?”, Presenter: Dr. Yunzhi Peter Yang

Presenter: Dr. Yunzhi Peter Yang, Stanford University

Abstract: Musculoskeletal disorders have an estimated cost of US$950 billion annually, placing a significant economic burden on national healthcare systems of the United States. Musculoskeletal ailments severely impact mobility, dramatically reducing the quality of life for patients, especially the elderly. Regenerative medicine and tissue engineering hold great promise to improve the treatment of these diseases and trauma as well as to restore lost functions. Despite great progress in the past three decades, there are still three fundamental challenges in tissue engineering that hinder translation and clinical success, including how to recreate microenvironments to control cell fate, how to promote vascularization for cell viability, and how to harness stem cells as cell source. In this presentation, I will introduce and discuss our bio-inspired approaches to integrate materials science and engineering, bone and stem cell biology, and orthopedic surgery to systematically address these challenges.
