Tissue Engineered Heart Valves and Hybrid Hearts
Jolanda Kluin
Abstract: Jolanda Kluin will focus on her research on heart valve tissue engineering. Besides presenting scientific results, she will discuss the difficulties the research group faces and the many little steps that are needed in the long road from bench to bed-side. Besides, she will tell about her Hybrid Heart project (the development of a soft robotic total artificial heart). She cannot present all the results yet but she will take you with her on her journey to achieve the consortium’s goal. The collaboration between physicians and engineers, physicists, chemists etc will be highlighted as she strongly believes that this is of utmost importance.
