3D Bioprinting - The Next Frontier in Medicine

Share

Imagine a world where drugs are developed without the use of animals, and where replacement organs are 3D printed from a patient's own cells, rather than being harvested. The award-winning interdisciplinary team at Aspect Biosystems is working towards making this a reality. Using a unique microfluidic approach to 3D bioprinting called Lab-on-a-Printer™, Aspect is 3D printing living tissues that are improving the efficiency of drug discovery and generating implantable tissue therapies to replace diseased or worn-out tissues. In his presentation, Tamer will discuss Aspect’s 3D printing technology, and will describe real-life use-cases that demonstrate the potential for bioprinting to revolutionize the fields of pharmaceutical drug development, disease research, personalized and regenerative medicine by providing living human tissues on demand.
