Contemporary Tissue Engineering: Lecture on 3D printing of organ-like systems Featured

On Thursday, March 14th, there will be given a very interesting lecture on 3D printing of spherical organ-like systems at Institute of Biotechnology of the Technical University Berlin. The physician Dr. Vladimir Mironov from the Medical Sechenov University in Moscow will inform the audience about tissue spheroids as building blocks for robot-assisted biofabrication of three-dimensionally printed tissues.

Tissue spheroids, smallest spherical tissue units, are printed in a matrix and gradually combine to form a larger tissue part. Cartilage transplantation already cultivates and transfers in vitro cultivated tissue from patients. A new scaffold technology consisting of magnetic and acoustic fields is presented using endocrine tissue as an example. In addition, insights will be provided into the magnetic composition of tissue spheroids under conditions of microgravity.

When: Thursday, March 14, 2019, 2.15 pm -3.15 pm.
Where: Institute for Biotechnology of the Free University of Berlin, Building 21, Room 21-004,
Gustav-Meyer-Allee 25, 13355 Berlin, Germany
