Jason Burdick's Biography

Jason Burdick, Robert D Bent Professor, University of Pennsylvania

Jason A. Burdick, PhD is the Robert D. Bent Professor of Bioengineering at the University of Pennsylvania. Dr. Burdick’s research involves the development of hydrogels through techniques such as photocrosslinking and self-assembly and their processing using approaches such as electrospinning and 3D printing. The applications of his research range from controlling stem cell differentiation through material cues to fabricating scaffolding for regenerative medicine and tissue repair. Jason currently has over 230 peer-reviewed publications and has been awarded a K22 Scholar Development and Career Transition Award through the National Institutes of Health, an Early Career Award through the Coulter Foundation, a National Science Foundation CAREER award, a Packard Fellowship in Science and Engineering, and an American Heart Association Established Investigator Award. He was recently awarded the Clemson Award through the Society for Biomaterials and the George H. Heilmeier Faculty Award for Excellence in Research. He is on the editorial boards of Tissue Engineering, Biofabrication, and Journal of Biomedical Materials Research A, and is an Associate Editor for ACS Biomaterials Science & Engineering.

Our laboratory is interested in developing new biomaterials for 3D printing, as well as new printing processes to expand the utility of 3D printing in biomedical applications.  Hydrogels represent a class of biomaterials that have great promise for these applications, particularly due to our ability to engineer their biophysical and biochemical properties and the potential for cell encapsulation during printing.   This presentation will provide an overview of our approaches to advance the applications of hydrogels in 3D printing.  This includes the engineering of shear-thinning and self-healing hydrogels that can act as bioinks or as media for embedding printing technologies.  Further, we have developed both direct-curing and jammed microgel technologies to print hydrogels that do not meet the stringent requirements for current printing techniques.  These hydrogel systems are being explored in the engineering of in vitro models and for translational tissue repair applications.
