Rapid Fire: Fabrication and 3D Printing of Tissue Engineering Scaffolds

Timeslot: Wednesday, April 11, 2018 - 3:15pm to 4:45pm
Track: Biomaterials Fabrication and Analysis
Room: 204/205


The field of tissue engineering relies extensively on the use of 3D scaffolds to provide the appropriate microenvironment for tissue regeneration. This session will focus on the state-of-the-art technologies including 3D printing and related methods in the development of biomimetic materials and scaffolds and the application of these scaffolds to modulate desirable cellular responses and various tissue regeneration.
