Weekend at the 2022 Orthopaedic Research Society Annual Conference
POSTED ON: February 9, 2022
Over the weekend, Cooper engineering alumnus Christopher Panebianco ChE’16 and Assistant Professor of Chemical Engineering Jennifer Weiser presented at the 2022 Orthopaedic Research Society (ORS) Annual Conference in Tampa, Florida.
The conference is an international hub for biologists, engineers, clinicians, surgeon-scientists, orthopaedic surgeons, veterinarians, and those in the field of musculoskeletal science and orthopaedic care. The 2022 annual meeting offered numerous opportunities to present current work, establish collaborations and engagement with colleagues.
At the conference, Christopher participated in the research poster presentation and presented “Cell-laden Oxidized Alginate Microbeads Seeded in Genipin-Crosslinked Fibrin Hydrogels for Intervertebral Disc Cell Delivery: Long-term Evaluation of a Composite Biomaterial for Annulus Fibrosus Repair.” The poster was co-authored by current chemical engineering senior Sanjna Rao, who came in 3rd place at the 2021 AlChE Annual Meeting research poster competition.

Christopher also gave a podium talk during the ORS inaugural Education Session. The topic was on “At-Home Inquiry-Based Learning Experiments for Biomaterials Education and Outreach during COVID-19.”
In addition, Professor Weiser was invited to give a workshop alongside two faculty members from Stanford University and Clarkson University on Education in Orthopedics. Professor Weiser gave a workshop on “Getting Active: How to Shape Your Teaching Practices.”
