On February 26, the Biomaterials Lab will host a one-day, free biofabrication workshop for anyone interested in the field. We will present topics ranging from printing with cellular-based bioinks to specific troubleshooting issues related to bioprinting techniques. There will also be several laboratory demonstrations. You can find out more here: Bioprinting Workshop.
The Biomaterials Lab is proud to announce its participation in the 26th Anniversary Advances in Tissue Engineering Short Course. The course will be held at Rice University from August 8-11, 2018, and the Biomaterials Lab will host a special hands-on workshop examining bioprinting techniques related to tissue engineering. Featured presentations include members of the Center for Engineering Complex Tissues, which the Biomaterials Lab is a participating member. The course will examine topics ranging from patient-specific therapeutics to biofabrication of complex tissues.
The Biomaterials Lab is proud to announce that the NIH has granted a $6.25 million award to support the establishment of the Center for Engineering Complex Tissues (CECT). Researchers from Rice University, Wake Forest University, and the University of Maryland are leading the center to support the development of new biomedical technology at the intersection of biomaterials, tissue engineering, and 3-D printing. CECT will provide a platform for collaboration between these universities as they seek to improve regenerative medicine techniques and technologies.
