Presentation Summary

  • A synopsis of bioprinting strategies.
  • We will discuss the leading techniques for applying biomaterials as 3D printable "bioinks" and the inherent challenges when printing bioinks as living materials.

Speaker Biography (Rod R Jose)

Rod R. Jose is a doctoral candidate and holds a Master of Science from the department of biomedical engineering at Tufts University. Themes of his research center on exploiting biomaterials for mechanical and biomedical applications; and the design of strategies in order to do so. Rod's main focus is the development of a novel self-curing bioink and robotic bioplotting system which together enable non-deleterious biomaterial printing at body temperature. Applications for this work range from in vitro tissue models to clinical implants and prostheses with patient specific geometries.
