Seminar Series Applications of Engineering: 3D Bioprinting for Tissue

Speaker: Bahattin Koç, Sabanci University

Title: 3D Bioprinting for Tissue/Organ Engineering (Applications of Engineering)

Date/Time: 29 March 2023 / 19:00 - 20:00

Abstract: Bioprinting is a relatively new tissue/organ engineering method that involves printing living cells, with or without biomaterials, layer by layer to create three-dimensional living structures. Unlike other tissue engineering approaches, this method fabricates complex biological structures using only live cells, biomolecules, and biomaterials. This presentation will discuss biomimetic 3D bioprinting, bioprinters, and bioinks for tissue and organ engineering. The bioprinting process, including how to digitally copy and design tissue and organs, how to prepare bioinks, bioprinting instructions, and how to print live cells, will be explained. The presentation will also cover several applications and challenges in organ printing.
