Research Stage 1: Essential Research Activity
The Rice University Biomaterials Lab hosted their third annual Biofabrication Workshop on April 20 covering exciting developments in the fabrication and manufacturing of tissues and organs.
To all BML Users:
In light of the recent directives from Office of Research and President Leebron, effective immediately BML will be implementing the following protocols:
1) At this time, no external users (non-Rice users) will be able to use the lab.
The Biomaterials Lab is proud to present the 3rd annual Biofabrication Workshop. This year, we will introduce new speakers and topics. We'll be welcoming guest speakers from Johns Hopkins University, MD Anderson Cancer Center, University of Maryland, Rice University and more.
Earlier this year, Dr. Mikos and I (Tony Melchiorri) were asked to present our take on the future of healthcare from the perspective of the Biomaterials Lab. Here was our answer:
Students learning about the development of bioinks for 3D printing from a graduate student.
Workshop attendees learning bioprinting basics.
High school and undergraduate students from Mexico City visited the Biomaterials Lab in conjunction with the Health Museum's Innovation Days. The students took part in hands-on demonstrations of various 3D printers, including bioprinters capable of producing tissue engineering scaffolds.
