Rapid 3D Bioprinting for Precision Tissue Engineering

Date: 20 November 2020   Time: 16:00 - 17:00

Speaker: Prof Shaochen Chen, Chair of NanoEngineering Department, University of California

Prof Chen is a pioneer in 3D bioprinting and tissue engineering. To translate the applications of 3D bioprinting, he has generated a printed scaffold for spinal cord injury, and various organ-on-a-chip models for drug testing:

'In this talk, I will present our laboratory's recent research efforts in developing rapid 3D bioprinting methods to create 3D tissue constructs using a variety of biomaterials and cells.

'From these fundamental studies we have been creating both in vitro and in vivo precision tissues for tissue regeneration, disease modeling, and drug discovery. Examples including 3D bioprinted liver and heart models will be discussed. I will also showcase 3D printed biomimetic scaffolds for treating spinal cord injury. Throughout the presentation, I will discuss the mechanical engineer's perspectives in terms of design innovation, biomaterials, mechanics, and scalable manufacturing.'
