Yijin Ren

人物介绍
Yijin Ren has been the Professor and Head of the Department of Orthodontics at University Medical Centre Groningen, the Netherlands since 2007. She is also the Program Director for specialist training in orthodontics, one of the only two recognized specialties (the other one is Oral Surgery) by the Ministry of Health in the Netherlands, and is a 4-year full-time program to train dental clinicians, who are qualified after a 6-year dental training.
 
Groningen is one of the only three training institutes, with Dr. Ren as the only professor in orthodontics in the Netherlands. Clinically Prof. Ren keeps an active practice within her department mainly on patients with cleft lip and palate and other craniofacial anomalies. She is a consultant orthodontist in the Cleft Lip and Palate
Centre of Northern Netherlands.
 
Since 2015 Prof. Ren is also Director of the W.J. Kolff Institute of Biomedical Engineering and Materials Science, named after the godfather of biomaterials implants and devices, such as kidney dialysis and the artificial heart, Dr. W.J. Kolff, who obtained his PhD at University of Groningen. The Kolff Institute (KOLFF) is the only
engineering-centered institute that is embedded in an academic hospital in the Netherlands. Recently, in line with the new National Research Strategy and emerging global health problems and clinical needs, KOLFF has been under profound reorganization under the leadership of Prof. Ren, with the main focus on development
and application of innovative biomedical technology and techniques, including novel bio(nano)materials to improve quality of healthcare and to realize a sustainable healthcare.
 
Prof. Ren her research interests include biofilms and biomaterials-associated (oral) infection, novel alternatives to antibiotics, application of 3D imaging, workflow and 3D printing and manufacturing in clinical practice and outcome evaluation. Together with two other collaborating PIs in KOLFF, the team has recruited 20 sandwich PhD students in collaboration with two Chinese partners, Nankai University with funding based on Major International Collaboration Grant from National Natural Science Foundation of China; and Suzhou University, funding based on University Funding scheme for Biomaterials for Healthcare.
 
These PhD projects run in the period of 2015-2022 and focus on promising responsive nanoparticles and nanostructured surfaces for bacterial adhesion and biofilm control harnessing their unique features. Given that antibiotic-resistance amongst infecting bacteria is becoming a global threat, the outcome of this line of research is expected to have significant impact particularly in the biomedical fields.
 
Prof. Ren is also a Principal Investigator and Consortium member for a COFUND from MARIE SKŁODOWSKACURIE ACTIONS on novel tailor-made antimicrobials and delivery strategies (2016-2020), with a budget for 19 PhD students. The consortium members include Prof. Ben Feringa, 2016 Novel Prize Winner in Chemistry from University of Groningen.
 
Prof. Ren has served as a member for a number of committee’s and scientific editorial board, nationally and international. She has nearly 150 peer-reviewed research publications, and has given over 120 lectures worldwide.
 
Recently, Prof. Ren has taken up a new challenge by pursuing an Executive MBA degree at London Business School, a top-ranking program in business administration. It is her ambition to apply systematically trained management knowledge and skills required in all important aspects in a modern academic hospital, ‘the most complex human organization ever devised’, in order to benefit patients, professionals and healthcare organizations sustainably.
摘要
Lecture No. 1 for the Main congress
Title:
Full Digital Work-Flow and 3D Printing in Orthodontics, a fancy land or a means to an end?
Abstract:
Digital workflow and 3D printing has been game-changing and opened new avenues in many fields from device manufacturing, drug delivery to clinical planning and surgery guidance. Applications in medicine and clinical practice are booming. In this lecture examples how full digital work-flow in dental and orthodontic practice has profoundly affected the way how we work, and how we think in the process of diagnostics and treatment planning, and how 3D printing has contributed to and completed a full digital work-flow in a complex clinical process from diagnosis, treatment simulation, appliance manufacturing, intervention implementation, and outcome evaluation, are presented and critically discussed. With all the advantages it has to offer, digital work-flow and 3D printing remains a ‘tool’, a means to an end. It must not be regarded as an end by itself.
 
Lecture No. 2 for the Education forum
Title:
The True Power in Education at a Digital Age: knowledge application and learning transfer
Abstract:
‘Knowledge is power’, a famous saying by Sir Francis Bacon. But we must acknowledge that it was said in  1597, nearly 100 years before humans discovered the existence of bacteria, and before Newton published his three laws of motion. In the past centuries, human knowledge has grown exponentially. Today, possessing knowledge is no longer a winning criterion, as digital means allow rapid and efficient knowledge dissemination, and information is accessible to the most ignorant and the most learned alike. It is applications of knowledge that defines differences. It is in this context that medical and dental specialist training has been dramatically reformed in the West from the traditionally knowledge-based curriculum to competence-based specialist training.
In addition, multi-disciplinary, team-based clinical care has become the mainstream to replace the conventional mono-disciplinary, expert-centered clinical practice. This transition in health care globally requires a strong element of learning transfer in specialist training curricula. Education is less about fact and evidence, and much more about learn how to learn. Orthodontic curricula should provide space to allow students to learn about anything that can help them to make relevant connections across and beyond traditional dental disciplines, which are essential when they will be challenged by diverse and complicated problems in practice independently. In addition to the well-recognized connections of our clinical work with human growth, biology, biomechanics, biomaterials etc., which need to be strengthened, fields such as microbiology, genetics, psychology, public health and societal value and patients participation etc. are becoming more important, which will be discussed in this lecture.
