Lectures and seminars KI South Distinguished Lecture Series: Molly Stevens
The first lecture in this series is presented by Molly Stevens, Professor at Imperial College, London and Research Director, Institute of Biomedical Engineering, London, UK as well as Professor of Biomaterials and Regenerative Medicine in the Department of Medical Biochemistry and Biophysics at Karolinska Institutet.
Her multidisciplinary research balances the investigation of fundamental science with the development of technology to address some of the major healthcare challenges.
Short talk introduction by KI South Researcher Samir EL Andaloussi, senior researcher at the Department of Laboratory Medicine: ”Engineering of exosomes for macromolecular drug delivery”
Lecture: Molly Stevens at UK and at KI "New bio engineering approaches for ultrasensitive biosensing and cell based therapeutics"
Attend online via this Zoomlink
The lecture will be followed by a virtual "afternoon reception" with possibility to interact and ask questions.
Prof. Stevens’ work has been instrumental in elucidating the bio-material interfaces. She has created a broad portfolio of designer biomaterials for applications in disease diagnostics and regenerative medicine. Her substantial body of work influences research groups around the world (>350 publications, h-index 86, >30k citations, 2018 Clarivate Analytics Highly Cited Researcher in Cross-Field research). Prof. Stevens holds numerous leadership positions including Director of the UK Regenerative Medicine Platform "Smart Acellular Materials" Hub, Deputy Director of the EPSRC IRC in Early-Warning Sensing Systems for Infectious Diseases and President of the Royal Society of Chemistry Division of Materials Chemistry.
