Creating centimeter-scale complex tissue geometries within seconds via Volumetric Bioprinting

Our finite ability to spontaneously regenerate our organs, associated with increasing longevity, reinforces the need for engineered human tissues. Bioprinting made constructing architecturally complex, centimeter-scale 3D living structures possible in hours, arranging cells and materials into pattern that can hasten maturation into functional tissues. Nevertheless, biological elements such as cells and biomolecules are sensitive to physical stimuli and have shortened lifetime in solution. This can result in the reduction of cell function proportionally to printing time.

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.
