Paul Gatenholm's Biography



Paul Gatenholm, Professor, Director of 3D Bioprinting Center, Chalmers University of Technology, Sweden

Dr. Gatenholm is professor of Biopolymer Technology at Chalmers University of Technology, Founder of 3D Bioprinting Center, and Director of Graduate School at WWSC. He is also Adjunct Professor at Joint School of Biomedical Engineering and Sciences at Virginia Tech and Wake Forest University and Adjunct Professor of Biomaterials at Wake Forest Institute for Regenerative Medicine in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, USA. He has been professor of Bioprocessing and Biomaterials at the Virginia Tech, Department of Materials Science and Engineering between August 2007 and April 2009. Dr. Gatenholm is a material scientist with interest in the biomimetic design of materials. His research includes biological fabrication through the use of enzymes, cells, and the coordination of biological systems. Dr. Gatenholm is particularly interested in designing and preparing new biomaterials which can replace or regenerate tissue and organs. During past five years he has dedicated his time to development of 3D Bioprinting technology which he believes will revolutionize the field of Medicine. He has published more than 300 papers and edited several books and has more than 8000 citations. He is elected member of Swedish Royal Academy of Engineering Sciences.

The development of high resolution 3D Bioprinters enables positioning of several human cell types with high accuracy and reproducibility and thus reconstruction of complex tissue and organs. Rapid advances in stem cell isolation from patient own tissue such as adipose make it possible to have access to sufficient amount of autologous cells for tissue repair in one step surgery. The bioinks needs however to be developed and commercialized to secure supply of printable and cell friendly scaffolds. We have developed a new generation of water borne biomimetic printable scaffolds with unique printability into 3D shapes and ability to support cartilage growth. This lecture will review our work with this novel CELLINK for 3D Bioprinting of ear, meniscus, trachea and articular cartilage.
