Summary:In this talk, Dr. Ozbolat will survey the emerging field of bioprinting and the impact it is making on the medical sciences. He will discuss the great precision that bioprinting offers for spatial arrangement of cells, proteins, genes, drugs and biologically active particles to better guide tissue generation and formation. He will touch on the various applications of bioprinting including: advanced tissue engineering toward functional tissue and organ fabrication for transplantation, drug testing, research investigations and cancer or disease modeling. He will also discuss bioprinting of pancreatic organs for type-1 diabetes, vascular tissue printing, in-situ bone printing, cartilage tissue printing, and composite tissue printing for maxillofacial regeneration.
