Dr. Masoud Mozafari received his PhD degree in Biomedical Engineering-Biomaterials from Amirkabir University of Technology (Tehran Polytechnic), in 2013. He then joined Oklahoma State University and Pennsylvania State University as a senior research associate and research visiting scholar, respectively. His research interests include the role of composite scaffolds for tissue engineering applications with respect to biological interactions. He is known for the development of strategies for the treatment of damaged tissues/organs and controlling biological substances for targeted delivery into the human body. He is currently an assistant professor and director of the "Bioengineering Research Group in Nanotechnology and Advanced Materials Department, Materials and Energy Research Center (MERC). He is also an adjunct assistant professor in the Department of Tissue Engineering & Regenerative Medicine, Faculty of Advanced Technologies in Medicine, and Cellular and Molecular Research Center in Iran University of Medical Sciences.
Jayakumar Rajadas is the founder and current Director of the Biomaterials and Advanced Drug Delivery Laboratory(bioAdd) at Stanford University, USA. This center has been involved in transforming biophysical ideas into biomaterial and drug delivery technologies. These technologies include microencapsulation of drugs, vascular grafts, bio-implants, development of small molecule and protein-based drugs, regeneration of nerve and cardiovascular tissues, and wound healing applications. Before moving to Stanford, he served as the founding chair of the Bio-organic and Neurochemistry Division at one of India's national laboratories, Central Leather Research Institute Chennai, India, where he was responsible for both the organization and management of the division. Dr. Rajadas has published over 160 papers and has an h-index of 22.
