Scientists Say They May be Able to Print Live Human Tissue.
Dr. Lewis Obi lectured with other leading stem cell experts on the advancements in “Bioprinting” with Adult Stem Cells at the 3rd Annual CSN Symposium in Los Angeles.
Dr. Obi was a featured presenter at the 3rd annual Cell Surgical Network Symposium in L.A. in June. His presentation was a preview of the Jacksonville Stem Cell Symposium scheduled to take place in October of this year. This year’s Stem Cell Symposium will focus on the advancement in Bioprinting and stem cells on the battlefield and football field. (below)
Symposium workshops will be conducted at Obi Plastic Surgery in Jacksonville; Dr. Obi’s Plastic Surgery Clinic and ambulatory surgical center. Lectures will be held at Memorial Hospital of Jacksonville next door to Obi Plastic Surgery. An all star international cast of stem cell physicians are scheduled to participate in this event. Speakers include Cell Surgical Network co-founders Dr. Mark Berman and Dr. Elliot Lander of L.A., Dr. Paul Gattenholm of Sweden, and Dr. Hee Young Lee of Seoul, Korea.
On July 1, Dr. Obi will depart for Seoul, Korea where he will train with Dr. Lee on an the advanced Medikan Stem Cell Expansion and Storage System. This incredible system simultaneously stores and expands, (dramatically increases the number of stem cells) stem cells and was developed by Dr. Lee at Medikan International. This Stem Cell Storage and Expansion System is important to advancements in Bioprinting as very large numbers of Adult Stem Cells are used in Bioprinting.
To date, there are no clinically functional stem cell storage and expansion systems of this type in the U.S. But much of the stem cell systems and equipment used by Dr. Obi and the Stem Cell Surgical Staff at the Cell Surgical Network of Florida were developed by Dr. Lee at Medikan International.
