Bioprinting Development and its Application in Potential Organ Printing

June 7, 2023 — 12:45-2:00 p.m.

Bioprinting enables the precision fabrication of living tissue to create effective models for drug screening and to generate organs for transplantation. The challenge is to produce multiscale living structures of biologically adequate size (e.g., vascular network). In this lecture, Dr. Hamid Ebrahimi Orimi presents the development of a laser-induced lateral transfer bioprinter for multiscale printing. This transfer makes it possible to adjust the resolution and speed up printing. The loss of viability of the printed cells is negligible. This could be a promising solution for applications requiring multiplexing of bio-inks and multiscale bioprinting, such as the development of artificial tissues.

Learning objectives:

  • Introduction to biomanufacturing and bioprinting
  • Development of a bioprinting approach from mechanical simulation to biological validation
  • Investigation of hydrogel properties and their effects on the printing process
  • The current challenge in the field of bioprinting and application
