Taster Lectures and Academic Talks

Saving Babies lives using bioengineering
Dr Tina Chowdhury

In this inspiring talk Dr Chowdhury explains the pathway she took to becoming the only female academic bioengineer from Bangladesh at Queen Mary’s Faculty of Science and Engineering. She discusses her research in investigating ways to repair holes in the fetal membranes after premature rupture and reduce preterm births. The talk covers how fetal membranes can be repaired with a new bioengineering approach that mixes the best in science, technology, engineering, maths and medicine (STEAMM) subjects at Queen Mary University of London.

Audience: Can be adapted to suit from year 7 - 13
