4 Международная Конференция по Биомедицинским Технологиям
Rapidly evolving field of 3D bioprinting is a biomedical version of layer by layer additive manufacturing technology. 3D bioprinting could be defined as a robotic additive biofabrication of 3D tissue and organ constructs using biomaterials and living cells according to digital models. The 3D bioprinting technology promises to solve urgent clinical problems of shortage of human tissues and organs for transplantation. It will help to develop new authentic histo- and organotypical models of human diseases and in vitro models for drug discovery and toxicology. There are three main emerging 3D bioprinting technologies: i) inkjet bioprinting, ii) extrusion-based bioprinting, and iii) laser-based bioprinting. At this symposium, the state of art of these 3D bioprinting technologies will be presented and discussed by leading experts. Special attention will be given to the development of bioincs for 3D bioprinting - one of the hottest research topics in 3D bioprinting. Finally, new research trends in 3D bioprinting, such as hybrid bioprinting, in situ bioprinting, etc. will be discussed. The symposium will provide comprehensive analysis of 3D bioprinting technologies by outlining new directions in this field including clinical translation and commercialisation aspects.
