Symposium Technical Description

3D printing offers great precision and control of the internal architecture and outer shape of a scaffold, allowing for close recapitulation of complicated structures found in biological systems. It has begun to show great promise in advancing the development of functional tissue/organ replacements and various biomedical applications. This symposium aims to bring together experts across the range of engineering science disciplines to discuss the state-of-the-art in development of 3D printed implantable constructs for biomedical applications. The symposium will highlight challenges spanning from design of advanced biomaterials and innovative printing systems, to fabrication, and to implantation. Computational and analytical challenges will be a special focus.

Topics will include:

  • 3D bioprinting for tissue and organ regeneration
  • Design, analysis, and applications of printing biomaterials
  • Simulation of 3D printed constructs for biomedical applications
  • 3D printed tissues for cancer study
  • 3D printing for health
