Mr. Steven Morris 

BIOLIFE4D Founder and CEO Steven Morris possess more than 20 years of extensive experience in precision manufacturing, including 15 years serving as President of privately-held Inland Midwest Corporation (IMC) where he led the company’s transformation into a premier, state-of-the-art facility catering exclusively to the medical technologies industry. After several years of high profitability, Steven negotiated a successful exit strategy and sold the company in 2011.  After remaining on as President for over two years, he left and started BIOLIFE4D, an emerging biotech company working on the technology to bioengineer a human heart viable for transplantation using a patient’s own cells. His diverse and comprehensive knowledge of medical devices, processes optimization, and medical technologies will be extremely beneficial to the success of BIOLIFE4D.

Dr. Ali Khademhosseini

Levi Knight Chair. Professor of Bioengineering, Chemical Engineering, and Radiology at UCLA, Previously @Harvard and @MIT for 16 years, biomedical researcher, innovator, mentor, world traveler, educator, ACS Nano Assoc. Editor

Dr. Sanjay Sinha

Dr. Sanjay Sinha is an Interventional Pediatric Cardiologist and Assistant Professor of Pediatrics at UC Irvine and UCLA Mattel Children’s Hospital. He completed his medical school at the University of Arizona college of medicine and then moved to Los Angeles for his training. He completed his pediatric residency, pediatric cardiology fellowship, and extra interventional procedural training at UCLA Mattel Children’s hospital. His research interests are in transcatheter valve replacement in congenital heart disease. He has worked extensively in the area of 3D modeling for both surgical and interventional procedural planning and is currently the co-founder of the Congenital and Structural 3D Printing Program at UCLA.

Dr. August De Oliveira

Dr. August De Oliveira graduated in the top 10% of his class at the University of Washington School of Dentistry in 1997. After moving to Los Angeles from Seattle, Dr. de Oliveira did an optional additional year in a General Practice Residency at the VA Sepulveda where he learned advanced techniques in Endodontics (Root Canals), Dental Implants, and Restorative Dentistry. Dr. de Oliveira lectures weekly all over the nation on three subjects: CAD/CAM (same day crowns), CBCT (3D x-rays), and dental implants. On implants, he lectures from the basics of single-tooth implants to advanced Edentulous (no teeth) treatment. He has been published in many peer-reviewed journals and is widely recognized as a pioneer in CBCT Guided Surgery. Dr. de Oliveira has developed software for numerous dental companies and has authored two textbooks on dental implants.
