Breakfast Club Seminar
Scott Hollister, Ph.D.
Wallace H. Coulter Department of Biomedical Engineering
Georgia Tech & Emory University
“Patient Specific Design and 3D Printing of Pediatric Implants and Devices”
Professor Hollister’s research group, the Scaffold Tissue Engineering Group (STEG), develops biomaterial platform systems (termed scaffolds) for tissue reconstruction. The STEG specifically focuses on the computational design, manufacturing and pre-clinical testing of degradable scaffold material systems. These system can be used to deliver stem cells, genes and proteins to regenerate tissue defects resulting from disease (for instance due to tumor resection), trauma, or abnormal development. Specific clinical applications include spine fusion and disc repair, craniomaxillofacial (CMF) reconstruction, orthopaedic trauma and joint reconstruction, and cardiovascular reconstruction.
The Petit Institute Breakfast Club seminar series was started with the spirit of the Institute's interdisciplinary mission in mind and started to feature local Petit Institute faculty member's research in a seminar format. Faculty are often asked to speak at other universities and conferences, but rarely present at their home institution, this seminar series is an attempt to close that gap. The Petit Institute Breakfast Club is open to anyone in the bio-community.
