BioPrinting

Main content

3D Bioprinting is an upcoming technology defined as the deposition of biologically relevant materials in a three dimensional space. Although 3D printers are advancing fast in the field of rapid prototyping, there is onyl a very limited amount of materials available for bioprinting. Our laboratroy is investigating new ways and materials to employ 3D bioprinting as a technology for cartilage tissue engineering.
