Robotic-based in situ bioprinting

giovanni vozzi

Bioprinting has provided several advantages to traditional tissue engineering approaches for fabricating scaffolds for organ/tissue regeneration thanks to a precise and controlled biomaterials processing. Nevertheless, this technology, also known as in vitro bioprinting, suffers from several limitations when considering its clinical application, such as scaffold handling difficulty, risk of contamination, need of a maturation period in a bioreactor and shape/morphology of the bioprinted construct not perfectly matching with the defect site.

Biofabrication and 3D Printing for Precision Healthcare

yan yan shery huang

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.
