Laila Mahmoud Montaser

Menoufia University, Egypt

Laila Mahmoud Montaser MD was born in the City of Alexandria, Egypt, in a family of dynasty doctors, graduated from Faculty of Medicine, Alexandria University and got Diploma degree in Microbiology from Alexandria University, Diploma degree in Clinical Pathology, and MD from Faculty of Medicine, Tanta University. Prof Montaser is a Professor in Clinical Pathology and Hematology; Chair of Stem Cell, Regenerative Medicine, Nano medicine and Tissue Engineering (SRNT) Research Group. She served as the Founder of Clinical Pathology Department Faculty of Medicine, Menoufia University, Egypt, was being the Chair of Department of Clinical Pathology for more than 10 years. She supervised more than 44 M. Sc. theses and 13 Doctorate theses. She has made Faculty of Medicine a hub at Menoufia University. She is uniquely trained and situated and has a philosophy on how to manage research and has written numerous abstracts and research papers on Clinical Pathology, Hematology, and also Stem Cell, Regenerative Medicine, Nano Medicine and Tissue Engineering, her research interest, published in top international journals and Conferences. She has an important intellectual property (IP) on the proposal of a national project to launch an innovative strategy by integration of novel education method (Entrepreneurship Education) in the educational system in Egypt focus on the preparation of youth to meet the requirements of the labor market and develop a plan to implement the education needs associated with the labor market. She is a member of several international and national societies. She is an Honorable Editorial Board Member/Peer Reviewer for many National and International Journals. Montaser’s distinguished career as a Prof, and researcher who had an enormous international impact selected her for three times at 1986, 1998, and 2002 by Council of Menoufia University to Award of “Ideal Doctor” from Egyptian Medical Syndicate and also nominated to two major awards: TWAS prize in Medical Sciences and Nano Science Research Excellence due to her scientific achievements worldwide.

Using Stem Cells in Cartilage Repair and Tissue Engineering


Cartilage repair and renovation stay especially incurable owing to a much weak regenerative prospect of this tissue.  Facing the clinical defy of rebuilding of cartilage disorders, the scope of cartilage engineering has advanced. Until now, the plurality of research into cartilage restoration has been concentrated on articular cartilage due to the considerable predominance of big osteoarthritis in a more and more senility people. Consequently, tissue engineering which targets to originate new and amended tissue and organ subrogate has elicited growing benefit for articular cartilage reform. While stem cells grasp a large possibility for the handling of plentiful lesions and degenerative joint illnesses, various hurdles should be conquered before their medicinal implementation may be recognized. These comprise the evolution of sophisticated processes of advanced techniques to trajectory and evidence implanted stem cells. The fulfillment of nanotechnology to stem cell biology is promising to rubric the challenges of the dud of inoculated cells to contrive to target tissues. Our objective is to construct engineered biomaterial scaffolds to advocate cell culture and create novel cartilage tissue. This manuscript displays existent notions and schemas in cartilage engineering with a confirmation on the employment of stem cells and nanotechnology in the output of biomimetic cartilage reconditioned scaffolds. The domain of Cartilage Tissue Engineering, which is pointed to repair, renovate, and recover damaged or sick cartilage working, has holds exaggerated potential for effective Cartilage-treatment. There is a huge commitment to improve contemporary cartilage medications across attaining a systematically effective tactic for treating cartilage torments. Tissue engineering may be the better mod to make this intent by means of the use of stem cells, novel biologically inspired scaffolds, and emerging nanotechnology.
