RESEARCH & DISCOVERIES

State-of-the-art facility

The Lab hosts a variety of 3D Printers, including Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM), Bioprinters, Photopolymerization Printers (e.g., SLA, DLP, UV LCD), Selective Laser Sintering (SLS), Laser, and Food. Including in-house prepared Bio-inks & drug-loaded filaments (using single or twin screw extruders).

WORLD-CLASS RESEARCH

Our studies include: formulation / manufacturing, physicochemical characterization, computational modelling, in vivoex vivo, and in vitro evaluation.

The research at 3D Printing & Bioprinting Lab consist by a highly qualified research team and cutting-edge technologies.

Examples of current hot-topic research themes / projects, can be found below.

 

Our Lab, has been recognised by Expertscape as world leaders in Printing.

PubMed-based algorithms placed us in the top 0.1% of scholars writing about Printing over the past 10 years.

CARDIOVASCULAR DISEASES (CVDS)

Cardiovascular diseases constitute a number of conditions which are the leading cause of death globally. To combat these diseases and improve the quality and duration of life, several cardiac implants can be developed by 3D Printing & Bioprinting, including stents, arterial regeneration, bioresorbable vascular scaffolds, and cardiac patches.
