Tissue Engineering (SIG) – RAPID FIRE

Timeslot: Wednesday, April 27, 2022 - 2:45pm to 3:45pm
Room: Laurel C-D, 4th Floor


The field of tissue engineering has made significant progress in the last two decades through the development of novel biomaterials and three-dimensional scaffold fabrication methods. Efforts to engineer cell niches to control cell behavior over multiple length scales and precisely guide tissue regeneration have advanced the field. To achieve this, a diverse range of novel technologies have been leveraged, including 3D bioprinting, electrospinning, microfluidics, light-based patterning, and directed assembly, to enable notable progress in controlled release and spatial presentation of biomolecules, organ integration, production of tissue models, single cell-level presentation of microenvironmental cues, and molecular-level control of biomaterial composition. This session will highlight recent trends in novel biomaterials and scaffold development and advanced biofabrication techniques towards the development of sophisticated tool kits for tissue engineers.
