Biofabrication Masters Degree

Research Highlight from the BIOFAB Degree – Tube Printing

A continuous printing path is required when using the melt electrowriting technology, which needs extra planning when a cylindrical collector is required. Erin McColl, during her overseas research stay at the University of Würzburg, used mathematics to calculate the printing path onto a cylinder, so that fibers can accurately stack upon each other.

As reported in the journal “Materials and Design“, complex tubes can be fabricated this way, and Erin established an intuitive open-access website that automatically generates G-code so that the melt electrowriting of tubes can be established. The open access research paper  “Design and fabrication of melt electrowritten tubes using intuitive software” can be found here. The website for calculating the printing paths can be found at http://mewtubes.herokuapp.com/.

Bioprinting: 3D Printing Body Parts

BioPrintHeroImage

You may be aware of 3D printing or have seen low-cost 3D printers that can create plastic toys, replicas and objects of your own design. But did you know that 3D printing is also enabling life-saving and transforming medical procedures, which were unthinkable a few years ago? The world of medicine and biomaterials has collided with advances in 3D printing, creating a new clinical paradigm in biomedicine: 3D bioprinting. This online course tells the story of this revolution, introducing you to commonly used biomaterials and bioprinting techniques. Register at: https://www.futurelearn.com/courses/bioprinting/
