Webinar: 3D-Printable Hydrogel-Based and Particle-Based Biomaterial Ink Platforms

What Does It Cover?

3D-printing has emerged as a very promising fabrication platform for complex tissue engineering. However, a significant limitation is the availability of biomaterial inks that can be 3D-printed into highly, biologically functional materials and structures. Join us as Professor Ramille Shah and Dr. Adam Jakus of the Shah Tissue Engineering and Additive Manufacturing (TEAM) Laboratory discuss their work to expand the current 3D-printable material toolbox. They will review not only the an extensive variety of tailorable, functional, and clinically friendly biomaterials and corresponding medical constructs, but also additional materials, such as metals, alloys, graphene, and ceramics.

What Will You Learn?

Viewers will learn about:

  • Two new, distinct 3D-printable material platforms, Hydrogel Bioprinting and 3D-Painting, that  have been developed and  extended to create hundreds of distinct 3D-printable materials.
  • The unique and advantageous properties of the new materials.
  • Several new, specific, examples for the evolving area of 3D painting, including 3D-graphene, Hyperelastic "Bone", material mixtures, and new hydrogels for liver, kidney, and ovarian tissues.
