Pierre-Alexandre Laurent's Biography

Pierre-Alexandre Laurent, Senior Field Application Specialist, CELLINK

Dr. Laurent is currently senior field application specialist at CELLINK to promote and share all the possibilities offered by revolutionary 3D bioprinting solutions. During his Ph.D. he worked on the role of PI3Ks on the platelet functions and thrombus formation using in-vivo approach, microfluidic and microscopy technics. He continued with 4 years of postdoc at the University of Pavia (Italy) in the Balduini lab. His main project, based on 3D bone marrow models for the study of thrombocytopenia, led to the development of bioreactor for ex-vivo platelet production and drug testing purposes, using silk fibroin biomaterial and 3D bioprinting approach. Moreover, his research takes part in the European project SilkFUSION (H2020) that have for primary goal to engineer groundbreaking 3D nanotechnologies for large-scale production of blood platelets for human transfusion from human pluripotent stem cells. CELLINK is a consortium partner of the SilkFUSION project coordinated by Pr. Balduini lab in University of Pavia.

We will present how our 3D bioprinting technologies contribute to the tissue engineering, the organoids research and the organ-on-chip development. We will discuss how CELLINK’s technology enables the large-scale manufacturing of tissue constructs, which have wide application, including the development and validation of the efficacy of pharmaceutical and cosmetic products, screening of drug therapies, understanding of tissue development and oncology processes, and in the future translation to use in clinical applications. In addition, we will introduce our bioinks, which enable researchers to culture human cells to grow into functional tissue constructs. They provide a tissue specific microenvironment that cells can thrive in and allow to tailor a complex multicellular structure furnishing features of functional organs. Finally, we will discuss how cell biology and 3D-bioprinting approaches, are used to print organoids and tissue structures (such as liver, heart, skin), functional cancer tumor models as well as perfusable vascular network.
