Texas A&M biomedical engineering professor delivers lecture in Poland

Dr. Anthony Guiseppi-Elie, Texas A&M Engineering Experiment Station (TEES) research professor and professor in the Department of Biomedical Engineering at Texas A&M University was selected to deliver the inaugural lecture of the newly convened Interdisciplinary Science Seminar Series at Wroclaw University of Science and Technology (WUST), Wroclaw, Poland.

The WUST Interdisciplinary Scientific Seminar series are open technical meetings with world-famous speakers delivered to all academic staff and students at all levels, but also all those interested in deepening their knowledge of exact sciences. Dr. Andrzej Trochimczuk, vice rector for scientific research and international affairs of WUST, is the originator of the seminars.

“The development of international cooperation is one of key priorities for Wrocław University of Science and Technology” said Trochimczuk. Such cooperation encompasses many areas covered by the “Programme of Tertiary Education Internationalisation” announced by the Polish Ministry of Science and Higher Education on June 18, 2015. This includes participation by international visitors in the academic life of the university. Guiseppi-Elie is a well-travelled and highly sought after international reviewer and speaker with broad scientific, engineering and translational interests reflective of the many disciplines embraced here at WUST. It is fitting that he should open our seminar series.

Guiseppi-Elie spoke on “Engineering the Future of Medicine,” and provided a survey of his ongoing work on minimally invasive biochips for guided resuscitation during hemorrhage, biologically responsive drug delivery systems to address chronic wounds, and academic programs that blend preparation in medicine and engineering.

Founded in 1945, WUST is one of Poland’s top technical universities with several academic programs offered in English. WUST has established inter-university and inter-departmental cooperation agreements with over 120 tertiary institutes from 36 countries, and has exchange agreements and dual degree agreements with several institutions.
