3-D Bioprinting and Nanotechnology


Current research

By exploiting our robotic 3D printing system, the biomanufacturing of tissues and potentially organs can be achieved. Using this technique, we are able to study 3D microenvironments, which resembles human body-like 3D conditions in comparison to traditional 2D cell culturing. Our remarkable 3D peptide bioinks are used to study cell-to-cell interactions, cell differentiation, viability, proliferation, and ECM production. Hence, the ongoing development of forefront technologies like robotic 3D/4D printing offers an opportunity to generate macrostructures, which may potentially be used for organ replacements.


Peptide Bioinks Support Automated Printing of Large-Scale Constructs
