ASCCT Webinar TODAY: Rapid 3D Bioprinting: an Enabling Technology for Creating Functional Tissue Models
Tune in today, Friday, June 17 from 2-3 pm for an ASCCT webinar: Rapid 3D Bioprinting: an Enabling Technology for Creating Functional Tissue Models. It's not too late to register!
Shaochen Chen, Ph.D. Professor of NanoEngineering and Bioengineering Departments Co-Director, Biomaterials & Tissue Engineering Center University of California, San Diego
The goal of our laboratory is to develop micro- and nano-scale bioprinting and 3D printing techniques to create 3D designer scaffolds for tissue engineering and regenerative medicine. In this talk, I will present my laboratory’s recent research efforts in rapid continuous projection 3D bioprinting to create 3D scaffolds using a variety of biomaterials. These 3D biomaterials are functionalized with precise control of micro-architecture, mechanical (e.g. stiffness and Poisson’s ratio), chemical, and biological properties. Design, fabrication, and experimental results will be discussed. Such functional biomaterials allow us to investigate cell-microenvironment interactions at nano- and micro-scales in response to integrated physical and chemical stimuli. From these fundamental studies we can create in vitro tissue models for precision tissue engineering and regenerative medicine.
