University of California San Francisco Give to UCSF

Join us for a special seminar with Fiona Freeman, PhD from University College Dublin; and Stefaan Verbruggen, PhD from Queen Mary University of London & Insigneo Institute for in silico Medicine.

WHEN: Wednesday, January 31, 12:00-1:30 PM (pacific time)
WHERE: UCSF Parnassus Campus, Medical Sciences Building, 513 Parnassus Avenue, Room S-214


Dr. Fiona Freeman is an Assistant Professor and Ad Astra Fellow in the School of Mechanical and Materials Engineering at University College Dublin (UCD). Dr. Freeman leads a multidisciplinary research group investigating the use of innovative biomedical engineering techniques to better understand and develop novel therapeutics to treat pediatric bone cancer, Osteosarcoma.

Dr Stefaan Verbruggen is a Lecturer in Medical Technology at Queen Mary University of London. His research focuses on the mechanobiology of bone cells, and developing predictive in vitro models of cancer metastasis. As a Visiting Academic at the INSIGNEO Institute of in silico Medicine, Dr Verbruggen also builds predictive computational models of the biomechanics of metastatic bone lesions.
