Aleksandr Ovsianikov's Biography

Aleksandr Ovsianikov, Professor, Head of Research Group 3D Printing and Biofabrication, Technische Universität Wien (TU Wien)

Dr. Ovsianikov is a full Professor and a head of the group “3D Printing and Biofabrication” at the TU Wien (Vienna, Austria). His research is dealing with the use of additive manufacturing technologies for tissue engineering and regenerative medicine. Dr. Ovsianikov has background in laser physics and material processing with femtosecond lasers. A particular focus his current research is establishing multiphoton lithography in the domain of biofabrication for engineering of biomimetic 3D cell culture matrices and realization of novel tissue engineering scaffolds. Dr. Ovsianikov was awarded a prestigious Starting Grant in 2012 and a Consolidator Grant in 2017 from the European Research Council (ERC) for projects aimed at these topics. Together with Prof. Mironov and Prof. Yoo he is an editor of a living book project “3D Printing and Biofabrication” published by Springer in cooperation with Tissue Engineering and Regenerative Medicine International Society (TERMIS).

3D printing opens exciting perspectives towards rapid engineering of complex 3D structures and cell-containing constructs for microfluidic and organ-on-chip applications. In this context, multiphoton lithography (MPL) is an outstanding approach, allowing to produce complex 3D constructs with features down to sub-µm level directly in the volume of the photosensitive material, without the necessity to deposit it layer by layer. Furthermore, photosensitive material formulations and cells can be delivered by perfusing the channels, thus enabling 3D printing within already assembled microfluidic chips.

An increasing portfolio of available materials enables utilization of the versatile capabilities of MPL, from producing complex volumetric 3D structures by means of cross-linking, to creating void patters within hydrogels already containing living cells.
In this contribution, our recent progress on MPL for microfluidic and organ-on-chip applications and the development of according materials will be presented.
