About RESC

Regional Engineers and Scientists of Cincinnati

Established in 1966, we are gathered from a variety of technical disciplines in the Greater Cincinnati area. If you are an engineer or scientist, either working or retired, join us for dining and scientific discussion/education with other members. We meet October through May to share knowledge and experiences while pursuing interests in technology and industry developments. All of our activities are nonsectarian, nonpolitical and nonfinancial.

Our activities include:
Lunch followed by
Technical Programs, often with PE CE/CPD credit
Tours of local centers of innovation.
Involvement and support in local S.T.E.M. competitions

Tissue Engineering

presented by

Dr. Daria Narmoneva, UC

The current research efforts in Dr. Narmoneva's laboratory for Vascular and Cell Tissue Engineering focus on the development of novel treatments for chronic diabetic ulcers and other complications of diabetes via tissue engineering and regenerative medicine approaches. She actively collaborates with other investigators in the College of Arts and Sciences and College of Medicine at UC, as well as Cincinnati Children's hospital and Veteran Association Medical Center in the areas and heart valve tissue engineering, cell mechanosensing and mechanotransduction. To improve healing of chronic diabetic wounds, Dr. Narmoneva's team has created a unique therapy using a novel hydrogel (based on self-assembling peptide nanofibers) that mimics the native matrix in the wound and promotes healing. To activate unresponsive, diseased cells within the chronic wound, the team, in collaboration with colleagues from A&S, has developed an electric field-based technology that uses novel wireless electric fields stimulation to activate capillary cells and enhance blood vessel formation in the wound, promoting much faster healing. This technology has been successfully tested in the animal models, and is under active development in collaboration with UCRI and the Office of the Technology Transfer. Diabetes is also known to cause deleterious effects on the heart, causing formation of scar-like tissue (fibrosis) within the heart muscle, a condition is known as diabetic cardiomyopathy. Dr. Narmoneva's research has shown that cardiac fibroblasts play a dual role as mediators of chemical and mechanical environment in the heart. Dr. Narmoneva, in collaboration with colleagues from Medicine, has developed an injectable microenvironment to treat diabetic heart disease. The experiments with diabetic cells and animal models demonstrated that diabetes-induced cellular deficiencies can be successfully corrected by the appropriately designed microenvironment, thus stimulating heart recovery and improving diabetic patient survival after the heart attack.

Dr. Narmoneva is a faculty member in Biomedical Engineering (BME), College of Engineering and Applied Science at the University of Cincinnati. Dr. Narmoneva received BS (1991) and MS (1993) degrees in Condensed Matter Physics from Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology, Moscow, Russia. In 2000, she received her PhD in Biomedical Engineering at Duke University, where she worked in the cartilage mechanics laboratory with Prof. Lori Setton. After graduating from Duke, Dr. Narmoneva performed her postdoctoral research in bioengineering at MIT with Prof. Roger Kamm in 2000-2001. In 2002, she received a postdoctoral fellowship from the American Heart Association and joined the Cardiovascular Research Laboratory of Prof. Rich Lee at Brigham & WomenÕs Hospital, Harvard Medical School, to work in cardiac tissue engineering. In 2005, Dr. Narmoneva joined the faculty of Biomedical Engineering Department at the University of Cincinnati as an Assistant Professor, and was promoted to Associate Professor with tenure in 2012. She is highly engaged in educational program development and undergraduate and graduate teaching in BME. She also runs a vigorous highly collaborative research program in the area of vascular tissue engineering and regeneration, which has been supported by the NIH, American Heart Association, Proctor & Gamble, as well as intramural grants from UC Technology Commercialization Accelerator, UC LEAF, COM Heart, Lung and Vascular Institute. She is an author of more than 60 papers & proceedings. Dr. Narmoneva's research has been featured on the NSF web page, in the UC news, and has received multiple recognitions via research awards from the International Wound Healing Society.


All future plans are subject to revision

* Qualifies for CPD Credit

If you have a suggestion for a topic or a speaker, send an em@il.

PE/CE Certificates

RESC offers PE/CE* Credit:

$5.00 for Non-members - Free to Members.

You are invited to join us for lunch at 11:30 am and attend the technical program for PE CE credit at 1:00 pm.

If you are unable to attend the luncheon you may attend the 1:00 pm program to obtain the CE Certificate but you must register one day prior to the presentation by email CE Credit

To receive the PE CE Certificate, we will request your PE registration number and your PE name since certificates are prepared in advance.

According to our information OH, KY and IN have reciprocal agreements for PE credits.

There is no charge for attending just the program.
