Abstract

fiogf49gjkf0d
We are but a few steps from realising the potential of tissue engineering and lab-grown medical implants. In this presentation, an overview will be given on the current state-of-the art development towards the creation of complex tissue structures. In particular, a focus will be placed on the emerging technologies of bioprinting and organ-on-a-chip, and I will discuss how these technologies may contribute to future precision medicine and reduced costs of drug development. The talk will also present a snapshot in the biomicrofabrication and microvessel-chip research conducted by my group.
