Abhigyan Satyam, a postgraduate researcher from Network of Excellence for Functional Biomaterials (NFB), NUI Galway is set to travel to Girona, Spain in this month after receiving a travel bursary award from the Future Investigators of Regenerative Medicine (FIRM). The bursary award will enable Abhigyan to deliver a podium presentation at the prestigious FIRM Symposium, which is to be held from the 30 September to 3 October.

Abhigyan began his career in biomedical research at Bundelkhand University, Jhansi where he received a MSc in Biotechnology. His master thesis project was carried out at All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS), New Delhi, India. In 2010 Abhigyan came to the NFB in NUI Galway to pursue his PhD under the supervision of Dr Dimitrios Zeugolis. His current doctoral research is focused on engineering functional in vitro microenvironment that will enable cell function maintenance ex vivo. Ultimately, the platform technologies developed through his work will enable wide acceptance and clinical translation of cell-based therapies.

Abhigyan said: “The scientific sessions of this symposium are extremely contextual, informative and will help him to interact with leading international experts working in the field of regenerative medicine globally.”

FIRM is a society established by EPSRC Doctoral Training Centre in Regenerative Medicine based between Loughborough, Keele and Nottingham University, UK. FIRM recognises the ever growing regenerative medicine community that decided to bring young researcher from European institutions and further afield together.
