The American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) is a not-for-profit organization that works to serve diverse global communities by advancing, disseminating and applying engineering knowledge for improving the quality of life; and communicating the excitement of engineering.
In an effort to propel the Tissue Engineering and Regenerative Medicine (TERM) industry further, ARMI | BioFabUSA is supporting the Alliance of Advanced Biomedical Engineering (AABME), ASME’s bioengineering initiative, to improve interdisciplinary communication. ARMI | BioFabUSA will work to inform, contribute, and launch AABME’s Bioengineering Lexicon in 2019.
On February 7th, 2019 in New York City, ASME will be hosting a “Tissue Engineering Lexicon Work Session,” which will work to level set the TERM terminology and lexicon to build a common language that members of the tissue engineering community will use. The session will bring together the TERM industry and academic experts to determine fundamental definitions in order to overcome potential areas of miscommunication within multidisciplinary teams. Activities will include large group discussions to achieve consensus as well as breakout group work in order to define terms and concepts, articulating the nuances in meaning and explaining how miscommunication currently occurs.
As members of the ARMI | BioFabUSA ecosystem, you have the ability to register at a discounted rate and the time spent at this work session as well as costs associated travel and lodging can constitute as cost share for your membership. Non-members are also encouraged to attend! For more information on this event and to register, click here!
