3D Printing and Biofabrication
Additive manufacturing (3D printing) uses a layer-by-layer principle for manufacturing. This one-week course will provide an insight into the opportunities of additive manufacturing technologies and 3D (bio)printing in biomedical applications. It will deliver the basics of 3D printing, including hands-on workshops with 3D printers, in which the students will interact with experts demonstrating the working principles and applications of multiple bioprinting technologies. Combined with lectures from renowned experts in the field of Biofabrication, the course will also yield insight into the challenges encountered when translating 3D printing towards biomedical applications.
