3D Bioprinting for Medical Applications

Timeslot: Friday, April 13, 2018 - 10:30am to 12:30pm
Track: Biomaterials Fabrication and Analysis
Room: 204/205


3D bioprinting is becoming widely investigated to fabricate cell-laden biomaterials and medical devices for biomedical applications. Despite this interest, limited progress has been made using 3D bioprinting as a device fabrication tool for clinical applications. This is mainly due to the lack of progress in development of novel bioprinting approaches and bioinks to create self-supporting structures with relevant scales. This session will focus on novel 3D bioprinting approaches and bioink materials.
