WEBINAR

Biophotonic cell-based medical devices: what they are, applications and manufacturing processes based on Optogenerapy project case

This webinar focuses on the concept, requirements and manufacturing procedures of cell-based biophotonic medical devices.

 

It is composed of three sessions:

 

  • An introduction to biophotonic cell-based devices and cell engineering processes

Marc Folcher – Senior scientist and lecturer, Department of Biosystems Science and Engineering, ETHZ

The concept of biophotonic cell-based devices, challenges and their potential applications as innovative therapeutic delivery treatments.

 

  • Introduction to optogenetic implant optical design

Dr. Thomas Siegel – Head of R&D, ASE Optics Europe

The fundamental properties of light and their relevance as tools to the optical engineer working in the health and medical devices sector. How to use light for the design of medical devices and characterise optical systems based on Optogenerapy project case.

 

  • Manufacturing a cell-based medical device via IME

Encarna Escudero – Senior researcher, Eurecat’s Polymeric Materials R&D Unit

How the manufacturing process of a biophotonic cell-based implant was approached. Requirements met during material selection process, as well as the technologies used and challenges overcome during manufacturing.
