Michael Gelinsky's Biography

Michael Gelinsky, Professor and Head, Center for Translational Bone, Joint and Soft Tissue Research, Faculty of Medicine, Technische Universität Dresden

Michael Gelinsky received his PhD in Chemistry from Freiburg University (Germany). In 1999 he moved to TU Dresden and worked for around 10 years at the department of Materials Science, heading his own group at the newly founded Max Bergmann Center of Biomaterials from 2002. In 2010 he was appointed Full Professor at the Faculty of Medicine and head of the Centre for Translational Bone, Joint and Soft Tissue Research ( His work is focused on biomaterials and scaffold development, tissue engineering and regenerative therapies, mostly for musculoskeletal tissues. His group is also very active in the field of additive manufacturing of implants and biofabrication technologies. Michael Gelinsky is currently President of the German Society for Biomaterials, is a member of the Board of Directors of the International Society for Biofabrication (ISBF) and has been appointed as coordinator of an ESA Topical Team on “3D Bioprinting of living tissue for utilization in space exploration and extraterrestrial human settlements”. He also is member of the ESA Facility Science Team (FST) for the development of a bioprinter and 3D cell culture system for the ISS.

By means of extrusion-based additive manufacturing (3D plotting) scaffolds and cell-loaded constructs can be fabricated easily. We have developed several pasty biomaterials based on biopolymer blends and polymer/mineral composites which can be utilized for 3D plotting and bioprinting with human cells and microalgae. By extruding two different materials through a coaxial double needle strands with a core/shell morphology and 3D scaffolds thereof can be manufactured which allow for dual growth factor loading and release. Combining two or more materials in a layered fashion leads to complex constructs suitable for the treatment of defects at tissue interfaces.
