Georges Kfoury is a biomedical engineering PhD Candidate working in the Biomimetics Engineering Laboratory (BEL) in the American University of Beirut, Lebanon. He acquired his Masters of Engineering degree from the Holy Spirit University of Kaslik (USEK) Lebanon, working on the quantification of multinuclear multivoxel MRS metabolites using a wavelet method. He recently published his first article in Advanced Biosystems volume 4, issue 7 “Alginate Sulfate Substrates Control Growth Factor Binding and Growth of Primary Neurons: Toward Engineered 3D Neural Networks” which is the subject of his presentation. His design was accepted for the inside front cover of the same journal’s issue. He is currently working on a tissue engineered solution for knee osteoarthritis.
