Featured Speaker

Eben Alsberg, PhD

Richard and Loan Hill Professor of Bioengineering and Orthopaedics
University of Illinois at Chicago

Dr. Alsberg’s research is focused on innovative biomaterials, microenvironments and bioactive factor delivery vehicles for functional tissue engineering, regenerative medicine and disease therapeutics; control of stem cell fate decision; precise temporal and spatial presentation of signals to regulate cell function; mechanotransduction and the influence of mechanics on cell behavior and tissue formation; organoids and organogenesis; therapeutic angiogenesis; and cell-cell interactions.

 

 

UIC is a Leader in Regenerative Sciences Research

Moving beyond tissue replacement, using materials to enable our bodies to regenerate damaged and failing tissues.

We are leading investigations into how materials interact with living tissues, and the building of tissue replacements for the growth of cells/tissues to replace lost tissues. The Center for Wound Healing and Tissue Regeneration (CWHTR) is a unique community of scientists and clinicians devoted to the study of injury, wound healing, and regeneration. The Laboratory of Applied Dental Biomaterials and Interfaces is a NIH funded center studying the properties of the tooth in order to develop reparative/regenerative biomaterials to replace lost tooth structure.

 

Research at the UIC College of Dentistry

Our investigators lead cutting-edge research to discover and translate new knowledge at the boundaries of science, transforming oral health care practice, social systems and related technologies for the benefit of individuals, families and communities.

 Craniofacial Pathobiology
Working to improve treatment of oral cancer, caries, peridontal and other oral diseases. 

Regenerative Science
Moving beyond tissue replacement, using materials to enable our bodies to regenerate damaged and failing tissues.

Clinical, Translational & Community
Leading transformative studies to improve oral health outcomes both in the clinic and the community.
