Michael Gelinsky's Biography



Michael Gelinsky, Professor and Head, Center for Translational Bone, Joint and Soft Tissue Research, Faculty of Medicine, Technische Universität Dresden

Michael Gelinsky received his PhD in Chemistry from Freiburg University (Germany). In 1999 he moved to TU Dresden and worked for around 10 years at the department of Materials Science, heading his own group at the newly founded Max Bergmann Center of Biomaterials from 2002. In 2010 he was appointed Professor at the Faculty of Medicine and head of the Centre for Translational Bone, Joint and Soft Tissue Research (tu-dresden.de/med/tfo). His work is focused on biomaterials and scaffold development, tissue engineering and regenerative therapies, mostly for musculoskeletal tissues.

His group is also very active in the field of additive manufacturing of implants and biofabrication technologies (www.biofabrikation.de). Michael Gelinsky is member of the Board of Directors of the International Society for Biofabrication (ISBF) and has been selected as coordinator of a newly established Topical Team of the European Space Agency (ESA) on “3D Bioprinting of living tissue for utilisation in space exploration and extraterrestrial human settlements.”

For long-term space exploratory missions and extra-terrestrial human settlements, e. g. on Moon or Mars, the astronauts must be able to treat health problems on site as a fast return to Earth is impossible. 3D bioprinting is a promising technology which might allow fabrication of tissue constructs like skin and bone with limited equipment and materials which mostly could be produced locally. The presentation will give an overview about a study on bioprinting for space exploration which recently was carried out for the European Space Agency (ESA). We have investigated different bioprinting technologies, suitable biomaterials and also possible medical scenarios in which bioprinting might become an important tool.
