Cellulose-based scaffolds for fluorescence lifetime imaging-assisted tissue engineering

A Book, Review, Paper, Conference and Funding.

Book

Professor Dmitri Papkovsky and Dr Ruslan Dmitriev published a book ‘Quenched-phosphorescence detection of molecular oxygen: applications in life sciences’ (Royal Society of Chemistry, 2018)

Professor Dmitri Papkovsky and Dr Ruslan Dmitriev have published a book ‘Quenched-phosphorescence detection of molecular oxygen: applications in life sciences’ (Royal Society of Chemistry, 2018), in which they acted as Editors and also co-authors of five experimental chapters.

Review

Oxygen microscopy in cells and tissues

Professor Dmitri Papkovsky and Dr Ruslan Dmitriev published a review article in CMLS on oxygen microscopy in cells and tissue.

Paper

Cellulose-based scaffolds for fluorescence lifetime imaging-assisted tissue engineering

Dr Ruslan Dmitriev and co-workers have published a paper in Acta Biomaterialia on how grocery store cellulose materials can be transformed into biophotonic tools: 3D biosensor scaffolds for tissue engineering and intestinal organoid cultures compatible with live cell microscopy. The paper is entitled 'Cellulose-based scaffolds for fluorescence lifetime imaging-assisted tissue engineering'.

Conference

Kyoto, Japan

Dr Ruslan Dmitriev attended the TERMIS World Congress, Kyoto, Japan, September 4-7, 2018, one of the main conferences on tissue engineering and regenerative medicine (~2,000 participants). At this conference Ruslan organized a session and also gave a talk ‘Multi-parametric quantitative imaging of live cells in 3D tissue models’.

Funding

Professor Dmitri Papkovsky has received research funding awards:

a)       from the Irish Department of Agriculture, Food and Marine - on sensor based microbial testing (€520k over four years, jointly with Teagasc).

b)      from Agilent Fund for University Research (€49k, nine months)

c)       from the Irish Photonics Integration Centre – SFI PhD Scholarship (€240k).
