You are all very welcome to the IREC seminar that will take place on Tuesday 26 November 2019:



In vivo effects of metallic zinc in the arterial environment

Zinc (Zn) based degradable scaffolds under development for cardiovascular applications have garnered increasing attention in recent years. However, while extensive research and development efforts have produced numerous alloyed materials with refined structure, the biological consequences of a degrading zinc-based arterial implant have not been well addressed in pre-clinical studies. This presentation will focus on the biological effects of zinc-based implant materials for cardiovascular applications.





Dr. Jeremy Goldman, Michigan Technological University

Dr. Goldman received his PhD in Biomedical Engineering in 2002 from Northwestern University.  He pioneered zinc as a biodegradable implant material in a 2013 Advanced Materials publication, which has received ~300 citations according to Google Scholar.  Since entering the field in 2012, Dr. Goldman has published over 20 peer-reviewed papers related to the development of biodegradable metallic implants for cardiovascular applications
