Christina S. Kamma-Lorger obtained her PhD in tissue engineering at Cardiff University, UK in 2007. Her PhD thesis focused on studying the healing of Laser-Assisted In-Situ Keratomileusis (LASIK) flaps in the cornea and exploring possible ways of improving the healing of the tissue post operatively. Once she completed her PhD she was offered a 5-year post-doc funded by a Medical Research Council (MRC, UK) programme grant awarded to Prof. Meek in order to carry on her work in tissue engineering in the cornea using Small and Wide angle X-ray diffraction methods and electron microscopy. In 2012 she was appointed beamline scientist in BL11-NCD-SWEET beamline in ALBA synchrotron light source, Barcelona. Her research interests involve tissue engineering in connective tissues, bone regeneration and skin cancer. She has 29 peer reviewed publications in international journals, her publication H-index is 10 and she serves as a reviewer in a number of reputed journals.
Nafiseh Baheiraei completed her Ph.D. in tissue engineering (with honors) at Tehran University of Medical Sciences, Iran. She has been working as an assistant professor since Nov. 2015 at Faculty of Medical Sciences, Tarbiat Modares University, Iran. She has been winner of many national and international awards and honors. Her current research interests concern antibacterial materials, cell therapy, bone and cardiac tissue engineering. More specifically, she is interested in novel electroactive biomaterials for tissue engineering and regenerative medicine applications. In recent years, she has focused on better techniques for fabricating new scaffolds containing electroactive moieties including carbon based nanomaterials.
