Bioprinting In vitro Tissue Models: Challenges and Opportunities

Friday, 8 July 2016 at 14:00

Add to Calendar ▼

3D Bio-Printing uses cells, biologics and/or biomaterials as building block to fabricate personalized 3D structures or functional in vitro biological models for regenerative medicine, disease study and drug discovery. This presentation will review some recent advances on 3D Bioprinting.  Applications of using bioprinting technology for fabrication of tissue engineering model, drug testing model and cancer tumor model will be given, along with discussions for challenges and opportunities in the field of Bio-3D Printing.
