Dynamic cultivation of 3D Printed Tissue in Bioreactor with controlled conditions

The bioreactor set-up aims to fasten and control the tissue maturation thanks to its cultivation in regulated pH, temperature and oxygen supply level and under dynamic perfusion feeding.

Guest researchers at 3d.FAB!

We are pleased to welcome two guest researchers at the 3d.FAB platform on two different topics:

  • Tumor 3D Bioprinting
  • 3D printing silicon and mechanochromic material to produce implants with inbuilt photonic strain sensor

Dr. Wenjin Xiao got her PhD in chemical system engineering from University of Tokyo in 2014, developing the integration of chemical engineering methods with cell biology to obtain a relevant liver microenvironment in order to realize cell-based therapies and assays. During 3 years of postdoctoral training with Dr Adam Perriman at the University of Bristol, she worked on cell surface engineering with synthetic biomolecules in order to modulate stem cell behaviour used in tissue engineering and regenerative medicine. She is currently a postdoctoral research fellow funded by Cancer Research and Personalised Medicine (CARPEM) in University Paris Descartes. Her research interests cover the multidisciplinary fields of biochemistry, cell biology, biomaterials & tissue engineering and cancer research.

Dr. David Eglin is Principal Investigator and leader of the Polymers team at the AO Research Institute Davos in Switzerland. He has extensive expertise in the synthesis and the processing of responsive materials based on biopolymers such as hyaluronic acid and collagen. His group is notably using additive manufacturing technologies for both basic understanding of biomaterials and cells interaction, and for translational research in the orthopaedic field. In 2011, David Eglin was given the Jean Leray award by the European Society for Biomaterials for outstanding research contributions to the field of biomaterials. He has published over 100 peer-reviewed articles and book chapters, as well as 8 patents. He is president of the Swiss Society for Biomaterials and Regenerative Medicine and council member of the European chapter of the TERMIS Society

Master MAP 2D/3D: Total immersion in the skin of a 3d.FAB researcher!

This is the end of a week of Additive Manufacturing classes for students from MAP 2D/3D Master!

During the « Additive Manufacturing » UE, students had the opportunity to live a whole week in the researcher skin of 3d.FAB and realize their own 3D printing!

If you also want to live this experience, do not hesitate to be part of this Master!

[SAVE THE DATE] Termis-EU workshop: « 3D Bioprinting in Cancer Research »

Registration and abstract submission are now open!

3d.FAB together with Centre Hospitalier Universitaire de Nantes, the University of Nantes and INSERM will organize a TERMIS-EU Workshop which will be hosted in Nantes (France) on the 26th and 27th of August 2019. This year, the theme for the Workshop will be “3D Bioprinting in Cancer Research”.

New scientific article in Bioprinting

New scientific article in Bioprinting (ed A. Atala) by 3d.FAB platform, Labskin Creation and LRGP (Nancy) about large bioprinted tissues dynamic maturation and flow simulation.

Additive Manufacturing Cup 2019

After winning the 3rd place at the AM Cup Contest 2018, once again, the 3d.FAB team is in the competition with the Additive Manufacturing Cup 2019!

Today, the challenge is to 3D print the PPSU.

PPSU delivers the highest performance of sulfone polymers, offering better impact resistance and chemical resistance than polysulfone (PSU) and polyetherimide (PEI) destined for Healthcare, Aerospace, and Industrial applications.

See you in April 2019 for the winners announcement!
