Biofabrication is a truly multidisciplinary area of research. It requires an understanding of chemistry, physics, biology, medicine, robotics and computer science. In this respect, few researchers entering the biofabrication field have been trained in such a diverse range of subjects. It is one aspect of the BIOFAB Collaborative Double Master’s degree to assess the background knowledge of the student and instruct them in the sciences in which they have little knowledge. This educational philosophy of “technical equalisation” is ideally introduced at the Master’s level for biofabrication.

Overview of Clinical Applications and Themes available to BIOFAB students.

Providing both themes and clinical applications provides the opportunity for a BIOFAB student to research a project that they have a keen interest in. At the conclusion of the Collaborative Double Master’s Degree the student would have been exposed to both new technologies and become experienced in the medical challenges facing certain tissues/organs.

So if you are interested in everything to do with science, from biology to robotics, then consider a career in biofabrication!
