Biofabrication and 3D Bioprinting: Sustainable technologies for healthcare, electronics and engineering biology


Alder Lecture Theatre, Nucleus Building, King’s Buildings, University of Edinburgh


Wednesday, February 28, 2024 - 12:30 to 13:30


This presentation will illustrate my group’s research work on three themes:

  1. organoid and tumoroid bioassembly;
  2. 2D printing of soft and biological materials;
  3. fibre biofabrication for wearable sensors and bioelectronics.

Enabled by these technological developments, I will show how fit-for-purpose design of 3D printed biomimetic models, when coupled with machine learning, can provide new ways of cost-effective and ethical clinical informatics. I will also discuss an outlook on how multiscale biofabrication can be harnessed to create more physiologically complete in vitro models, and to make sustainable and imperceptible bioelectronic interfaces for living systems.
