Since its 100th anniversary, the "Pre-emptive Contest" event has received widespread response from all walks of life. The 2020 "Pre-emptive Contest" will enter its 10th edition. It will be divided into "Creative Ideas", "Innovative Practices" and "Entrepreneurship". There are three categories of "Planning" and the theme of "Beyond Future". It is hoped that young students can stand on the cornerstone of academic achievements and look for a future beyond imagination. This year, a total of 313 teams and 1,498 students participated in the competition and were selected from them. Excellent works of 35 teams.
The winner of the "Entrepreneurship Planning" category in the 10th Preliminary Competition is the "Zhen Gude" team from the Institute of Chemical Technology of National Taiwan University. The team combined with "Biotechnology Center-Cell Therapy Product Development for Regenerative Medicine" to assemble functional tissues using a gas-phase dry clean process The engineered scaffold is coated with patient's platelet-rich plasma (PRP) or mesenchymal stem cells of human`s bone marrow, as an implant to replace or repair damaged parts, and release growth factors to accelerate the restoration of normal physiological functions of damaged tissues . The stent product can flexibly adjust the structural characteristics of the material, such as the hardness of the material, and the size of the hole. It can be customized to meet the different medical needs of patients, and achieve multi-functional and multi-purpose applications. It has the development potential of precise stem cell therapy.
