I (Ken Ogueri) was really honored to be a speaker in the just concluded American Chemical Society national meeting in Washington D.C. ( 254th ACS National Meeting). There, I gave an oral presentation at “Polyphosphazenes in Biomedicine, Engineering & Pioneering Synthesis” symposium of the technical division of “polymeric materials science and engineering-PMSE”. I was awarded a travel fellowship award to cover for the travel expenses. Also, my abstract was selected for the Sci-Mix poster presentation. Sci-Mix is a large poster session and mixer held at each ACS national meeting. The poster session consists of abstracts selected by division program chairs and represents the most exceptional abstracts submitted to participating divisions.
My doctoral advisor and mentor, Dr. Cato T. Laurencin was also one of the guest speakers in the meeting.
Last July, I was also present in the “5th Annual Workshop on Micro-And Nanotechnologies for Medicine: Emerging Frontiers And Applications” hosted by Harvard-MIT Health Sciences & Technology in conjunction with MAYO CLINIC at Cambridge, MA. I gave an oral sound-bite presentation of my current research project.
These conferences will keep me up-to date with current trends and new developments in Biomaterials and Tissue/Regenerative Engineering.
Great thanks to my doctoral advisor for these wonderful opportunities!
