The merging of biological matter with engineering components, could transform a number of emerging fields, including regenerative medicine and bio-machine interfaces. This presentation considers my group’s recent work in biofabrication and bioprinting techniques across different length scales. Particular focus is placed on the fabrication of extracellular matrix fibre analogue, embedded 3D printing, and guided tissue assembly that could extend the feature resolution and material functionality of tissue constructs.
Such cross-scale bio-design and manufacturing strategy may ultimately translate engineering capability into an accessible life sciences toolkit, fulfilling its potential to deliver in vitro disease models and engineered tissue implants.
