    Prof. Barralet is a Materials Science At the Faculty of Dental Medicine and Oral Health Sciences, McGill University. He was specialised in Biomaterials during his PhD at the Interdisciplinary Research Centre in Biomedical Materials, QMW, University of London. His research interests are Bioceramics in particular low temperature syntheses of nanocrystalline and amorphous inorganics, cold setting materials (cements) and precipitation to create new or improved materials or devices for tissue repair or delivery. Work on tissue engineering has focussed on new ways to build 3D structures using microscaffolds as building blocks for macroscale constructs. In addition calcium cross linked alginate has been evaluated as a tissue engineering scaffold. He has been awarded a Canada Research Chair in Osteoinductive Biomaterials and will work on this topic as well as extending prior work to include biomineralisation.

    Dr. Heiko Richter is a Product Manager specialised in Laser microtomes and related technology at bei LLS ROWIAK LaserLabSolutions GmbH, Germany. He graduated from University of Mu?nster and obtained a PhD from University of Hildesheim. He has extensive experience on animal tissue preparation for histology and the laser microtome system for hard tissue and biomaterial research. 

    Dawei Jiang, received his Ph.D. in Inorganic Chemistry from Shanghai Institute of Applied Physics, Chinese Academy of Sciences in 2015. After 5 years of postdoctoral training in Prof. Weibo Cai’s lab at the University of Wisconsin - Madison, he joined Wuhan Union Hospital as a full professor in 2020. His research interests include the design and development of DNA-based nanoprobes for biomedical imaging and disease treatment. He has published more than 100 academic papers and was awarded “2019 Ones to Watch” and “Michael J. Welch Postdoctoral Award” from the Society of Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging. He is currently the Editor-in-Chief of Am. J. Nucl. Med. Mol. Imaging and serves in editorial boards of Molecular Pharmaceutics and Journal of Nanobiotechnology.
