‘Ask the Expert’: Bioprinting and Biofabrication
Thursday 8th June 2017, 1.30pm-5pm
Room 2.22, Research Beehive, 1st Floor Old Library Building, Newcastle University
Cell printing, cell/material co-processing and 3D bioprinting are growing research areas, with a range of techniques available with the potential to create and complex cell co-cultures, and pre-seeded tissue engineering scaffolds with gradient mechanical and biological properties. However, challenges remain in the productivity, reliability and repeatability of the techniques. This workshop will give an overview of the current research and commercial processing techniques, and offer attendees the opportunity to discuss the technologies with engineers and scientists who work with the techniques on a day-to-day basis.
The workshop will be useful for attendees who are curious about bioprinting and biofabrication, for attendees planning to use bioprinting and biofabrication in the future, and for those already using bioprinting and biofabrication techniques but who want to broaden their knowledge.
1.30pm Coffee and registration
