Invitation to Submit Research Highlights for Upcoming TCES newsletters

TCES is always on the lookout for new research developments that can benefit our members. To this end, we are inviting you to submit news, a research highlight, such as a short summary of a recently published paper, and/or a short piece highlighting a member of your team (senior PhD student or postdoc). This is an excellent opportunity to showcase your work, share your ideas with fellow members, and help promote the advancement of your team members as well as tissue engineering research.

Submission guidelines:

  • Your submission must be clearly related to tissue engineering research.
  • Your submission should not exceed 400 words.
  • It can include one figure or photo.

The deadline for submission is 6th July 2023, and selected submissions will be featured on future TCES newsletters and social media channels (if applicable). Please note that all submissions will be reviewed by the TCES Committee, and we reserve the right to make minor edits for clarity and brevity.
