报告人简介

Elizabeth Tanner教授是英国皇家工程院院士和爱丁堡皇家学会院士,伦敦大学女王学院生物医学材料“Bonfield“荣誉教授,生物工程研究所所长。

Elizabeth Tanner教授主要研究方向是基于与骨矿物化学性质相近的生物活性陶瓷增强聚合物复合材料并用于骨量扩增。她研发的HAPEX®材料是首个实现广泛临床应用的生物陶瓷产品,已成功用于25万名患者的中耳植入。她联合了伦敦大学女王学院、圣巴塞罗缪医院(医学院)、伦敦皇家医院(医学院)在生物医学工程研究领域的合作,并促成了三校合并。Tanner教授2007-2018年在格拉斯哥大学担任生物医学材料教授,开创了苏格兰首个生物医学工程本科专业。她也是2020年英国格拉斯哥世界生物材料大会主席。

Professor Liz Tanner returned to Queen Mary University of London as the Bonfield Professor of Biomedical Materials in September 2018 and is the Director of the Institute of Bioengineering. She brings together research in biomedical engineering in Science and Engineering and St Bartholomew’s and the Royal London Hospitals and Medical School. She was Professor of Biomedical Materials at the University of Glasgow 2007-2018. At Glasgow she developed and ran the first undergraduate degree in Biomedical Engineering in Scotland. Her expertise is biomaterials for bone augmentation based on composites of polymers reinforced with bioactive ceramics which are chemically close to bone mineral. These materials are either permanent, as used in middle ear implants, or degradable such as used in bone tissue engineering and fracture fixation. HAPEX a material she helped develop was used in middle ear implants in ¼ million patients. She is one of the Organisers of the 11th World Biomaterials Congress in Glasgow in 2020. She is a Fellow of the Royal Academy of Engineering and a Fellow of the Royal Society of Edinburgh.
