    3-jabbari Esmaiel Jabbari is Full Professor of Chemical Engineering at University of South Carolina. He is internationally known for his work on synthesis and processing of biomimetic bioinspired materials for drug delivery and tissue engineering applications. His research interests include bioinspired materials, skeletal tissue engineering, stem cell encapsulation and delivery, self-assembled nanogels for growth factor delivery, drug targeting to cancer stem cells, and engineering the microenvironment of cancer cells. He has published extensively in the areas of biomaterials, drug delivery, and tissue engineering. He has edited four books, published one encyclopedia entry, 19 book chapters, over 100 refereed journal papers, over 100 refereed conference proceedings, presented over 60 invited seminars, and >200 presentations at national and International conferences. He received his PhD in Biomaterials from Purdue and his Masters degrees, in chemical engineering and chemistry, and his undergraduate degree in Chemical Engineering from Virginia Tech.
    e was elected to the College of Fellows of the American Institute for Medical and Biological Engineering AIMBE in 2013. He received the Berton Rahn research prize award in Orthopedic Research from the Arbeitsgemeinschaft für Osteosynthesefragen AO Foundation in 2012. In 2008 he received the Stephen B. Milam Research Award from the Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Foundation for contribution to auto-inductive biomaterials for repair of maxillofacial and cranial tissues. He is the North America Editor of the Journal of Biomaterials and Tissue Engineering and serves on the Editorial Board of International Journal of Biomaterials and International Journal of Biomedical Nanoscience and Nanotechnology. He is a member of the Outstanding College Students of America, the New York Academy of Sciences, Who is Who in Engineering Education, and Who's Who in America. He is also a member of honorary engineering society Tau Beta Pi, Chemistry Society Phi Lambda Upsilon, and Research Society Sigma Xi.

    3-Dr.Andreas Professor Andreas Nussler is the head of Siegfried Weller institute. Earlier he was the head of the department of Trauma, university of Berlin.

    3-Dr.Natalia Dr. Natalia Tapia has gained her PhD in 2005 from The Autonomous University of Barcelona. From 2005-2009 she worked as a postdoctoral research fellow in Max Planck institute for molecular biomedicine (Munster,Germany)and from 2009-2014 she worked as a group leader at that institute. Her work was centered around fibroblast transdifferentiation into neural stem cells. From 2014-2016 Dr. Tapia worked as an independent group leader in Heinrich Heine University, Dusseldorf, Germany. She currently works as a researcher at the biomedicine institute of Ramón y Cajal, Valencia, Spain.
