Event Details

 

Cell printing, cell/material co-processing and 3D bioprinting are growing research areas, with a range of techniques available with the potential to create and complex cell co-cultures, and pre-seeded tissue engineering scaffolds with gradient mechanical and biological properties.  However, challenges remain in the productivity, reliability and repeatability of the techniques.  This workshop will give an overview of the current research and commercial processing techniques, and offer attendees the opportunity to discuss the technologies with engineers and scientists who work with the techniques on a day-to-day basis. 

 

The workshop will be useful for attendees who are curious about bioprinting and biofabrication, for attendees planning to use bioprinting and biofabrication in the future, and for those already using bioprinting and biofabrication techniques but who want to broaden their knowledge.

MeDe Innovation - The EPSRC Centre for Innovative Manufacturing in Medical Devices

The Centre for Innovative Manufacturing in Medical Devices researches and develops advanced design and manufacturing methods for the medical device sector.

Our  innovative design and manufacturing advances will focus in the first instance on class 3 medical devices for musculoskeletal disease, where the cost of device failure and need for throughout life reliability are high.

The Centre is a collaborative research project which brings together expertise from the universities of Leeds, Newcastle, Nottingham, Bradford and Sheffield as well as a range of expert clinicians from across the  UK. Our 12 founding industry members are embedded within our research projects, with many more forming an industry-wide network.

Our Centre for Innovative Manufacturing in Medical Devices is funded by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council and is part of a wider programme of support for innovative manufacturing research centres.
