3D Bioprinting (16:45 - 18:00)16:45 - 17:10 "New 3D Printing System for the Medical Market"
The future vision of implants comprises the generation of artificial tissue generated from the patient's own cells. Furthermore, sophisticated complex tissue models will help to perform adequate in vitro testing and avoid animal experiments. We develop printable and photo-crosslinkable material systems which are based on the bio-polymers from the natural extracellular matrix of soft tissue. Such bioinks are biomimetic matrices for 3D encapsulation of cells and cell printing and result in hydrogel compounds which can be tailored to mimic the biochemical and mechanical properties of native tissues.
