Room 213 A

Biofabrication and Biomanufacturing in Tissue Engineering and Regenerative Medicine (TERM) 2

Scope

Biofabrication has become an innovative tool for the field of biomedical applications, especially, tissue engineering and regenerative medicine. This technology has been developed to allow construction of biological substitutes mimicking structures and functions of native tissues or organs. Biofabrication enables precise placement of various cell types, biomaterials, and bioactive molecules in a single three-dimensional (3-D) architecture. This special session will report state-of-the-art research and development of using novel physical, chemical, biological, and/or engineering process for 1) integrated bio-nano fabrication and bio-micro fabrication; 2) cell/tissue printing, patterning and organ printing; 3) cell-integrated biological systems, microfluidic devices, biosensors, and biochips; 4) 3-D tissue scaffolds and tissue constructs; 5) computer-aided patient-specific biofabrication and tissue engineering; 6) protein/biomolecule printing and patterning; 7) 3-D tissue/organ imaging reconstruction.
