Nicanor Moldovan's Biography

Nicanor Moldovan, Associate Research Professor, Departments of Biomedical Engineering and Ophthalmology, Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis

Dr. Nicanor I. Moldovan is an Associate Research Professor at IUPUI, and founding Director of the 3D Bioprinting Core at Indiana University School of Medicine. He received an MS in Biophysics at the University of Bucharest, Romania and his PhD in Cellular Biology from the ‘N. Simionescu” Institute of Cellular Biology and Pathology also in Bucharest, Romania. After a post-doctoral training in Cardiovascular Medicine at Johns Hopkins University, he performed bio-medical and bio-engineering research at the Oho State University in Columbus, OH. His current work at IUPUI is in scaffold-free biofabrication, bioprinting, implant bio-compatibility, and in computer modeling of cells and tissues. He is also an Associate Editor of Journal of Cellular and Molecular Medicine.

‘Scaffold-free’ tissue engineering relies on cells’ own ability to reconstitute complex bio-similar tissues, without the need of artificial materials as extracellular matrix equivalents (or ‘scaffolds’). I will discuss the uses in this regard of ‘Regenova Bio 3D Printer’ by Cyfuse Biomedical, capable to perform the skewering in micro-needles of cell spheroids for making larger 3D constructs, and modalities of ‘hybrid’ bioprinting as a means to overcome some of its limitations.
