Abstract: Inorganic biomaterial is one of the leading used materials for tissue regeneration, biosensing substrate, and drug delivery carrier and surface modification technique is a key factor to improve the inherent property. Among the various inorganic biomaterials, hydroxyapatite nano-crystal is very frequently used for bone tissue engineering and drug delivery system.

The use of hydroxyapatite nano-crystal not only plays a significant role in maintaining the mechanical properties of the natural bone but also offers a favorable environment for osteocoduction, protein adhesion, and osteoblast proliferation. In addition, the feature that an acidic environment induces the dissolution of hydroxyapatite nano-crystal into nontoxic ions has attracted researchers to the develop various pH-responsive drugs and gene delivery system.


Here I will introduce a novel approach to the fabrication of porous scaffolds with surface-immobilized nano-hydroxyapatite is developed for effective bone tissue engineering and light-responsive gatekeeper for smart nitric oxide delivery using hydroxyapatite and mesoporous silica nano-particle. The hydroxyapatite coating on mesoporous silica surface is expected to act as a shielding layer for the nitric oxide donors but is degraded by acids generated from chemical reagent, which induce exposure of the nitric oxide donors to the physical environment.

Abstract: Natural killer (NK) cells are well known lymphocytes as a killer for transformed cells via virus infection or tumorigenesis. In this talk, I am willing to introduce the basic information, therapeutic applications, and possible engineering about NK cells according to the outline as below.

  • Basic information about NK cell development and activation

  • Recent trends in cancer immunotherapy: animal experiments and clinical data

  • Possible solution to problems in present NK cell approaches to cancer

Therapy: NK cell engineering and culture/maintaining systems 

Personal Note: Especially, I have been interested in 3D culture system for immune cells including NK cells. This could be a main topic for the meeting.
