Bioprinting for Tissue Engineering: from Open Source to Commercial Platforms

Timeslot: Thursday, April 28, 2022 - 2:45pm to 4:45pm
Room: Laurel A-B, 4th


Some of the earliest work in 3D printing for tissue engineering utilized common inkjet printers that were hacked to be able to dispense biomaterial and cells. More recently, increasingly sophisticated technologies to build 3D constructs ranging from extrusion through microfluidics-based dispensing to electro-writing and spinning have been incorporated into commercially available bioprinters. This session will look to explore cutting edge research to develop novel bio-inks, create complex scaffold designs, etc. in the context of applying bioprinting technologies to tissue engineering. Abstracts are encouraged to be submitted by those working with self-built or open source bioprinting platforms as well as from those developing or using advanced commercially available systems. The goal of the session is to demonstrate a diversity of perspectives regarding technology development ranging from academia to industry.


Abstracts will be available for download on April 27, 2022.
