Hattiesburg– An expert in the field of biomedicine will be the featured guest for the 2005 Bayer Distinguished Lectureship at The University of Southern Mississippi.

Dr. Kristi Anseth, the Tisone professor of chemical and biological engineering at the University of Colorado, will lecture on the topic of tissue regeneration on Wednesday, Oct. 12. An open forum with Dr. Anseth will follow on Thursday, Oct. 13. Both sessions will be held in the auditorium of the Shelby Freland Thames Polymer Science Research Center.

Dr. Anseth is an associate faculty director for the Initiative in Molecular Biotechnology at the University of Colorado and Howard Hughes Medical Institute assistant investigator. Professor Anseth’s research and educational program focuses on exploring, designing and characterizing new generations of multifunctional macromers that can be photopolymerized to form degradable networks.

Among her many honors, Dr. Anseth is the 2004 National Science Foundation Alan. T. Waterman Award winner. She received her doctorate in chemical engineering at the University of Colorado in 1994 and her bachelor’s degree in chemical engineering with highest distinction at Purdue University in 1992.
