This course has been cancelled due to Covid-19. There will be a series of webinars for which you can register!

Additive manufacturing (3D printing) uses a layer-by-layer principle for manufacturing. This one-week course will provide insight in the opportunities of additive manufacturing technologies and 3D (bio)printing in biomedical applications. It will provide the basics of 3D printing, including hands-on workshops to learn how the printers work. In addition, it will also provide insight in the challenges encountered when translating 3D printing to biofabrication.

IMPORTANT UPDATE - 01/07/2020: THE COURSE IS FULL AND NEW REGISTRATIONS ARE NOT ACCEPTED AT THE MOMENT, THANK YOU ALL FOR YOUR INTEREST IN THE WEBINARS. PARTICIPANTS WHO ALREADY REGISTERED WILL RECEIVE THE LINKS TO JONI THE CALL 30 MINUTES BEFORE EACH E-LECTURE.

In preparation for the next year, we are organizing a series of webinars on bioprinting that will take place during the week which was intended for the summer course. This event will be free of charge but will require a registration, as it will be limited in the max number of attendees. Students that had registered for the course will receive a priority right of attendence. To join, register at this link: https://forms.gle/2MLQ1m3k2vWn8B7m8

WHEN
Every day, from Monday, July 13th to Friday, July 17th, at 4 PM Central European Summer Time (10 AM Eastern Time / 7 AM Pacific Time /   7:30 PM India Standard Time / 10 PM China Standard time )

WHAT
We will have a 1 hr session every day (e-lecture + Q&A + peek in the labs)

HOW TO JOIN
- Registration (first come, first serve) is required to join the webinars.
- To register, fill the questionare at this link: https://forms.gle/2MLQ1m3k2vWn8B7m8
- The series of webinars is free of charge, but with limited capacity
- The link to attend the webinars will be sent to you via email 30 minutes before each lecture.

The webinars provide the basics of 3D bio-printing through e-lectures by international specialist on the specific challenges encountered when translating 3D printing to biofabrication. Specific topics include the development of bioinks, development and application of 3D in vitro models and the required control over processing conditions. Finally, it will provide state-of-the-art examples of how currently biofabrication is translated from bench towards the bedside. This course is endorsed by the ISBF, International Society for Biofabrication (http://biofabricationsociety.org)

TOPICS

-Introduction to Additive Manufacturing and Volumetric Printing

-Hydrogels, bioinks and suspension baths in bioprinting

-Electrowriting technologies and applications

-Bioprinting of liver models and organoids

-Biofabrication of kidney models and organoids

 

Although we are disappointed we will not be able to welcome you in person in Utrecht this year, we will still run strong in 2021 with the next edition of the course. We would be happy to host you in Utrecht next year if you want to join and learn about bioprinting.

Course aim

To provide insight in the opportunities of additive manufacturing technologies and 3D printing in biomedical applications. It will provide the basics of 3D printing, including a hands-on Ultimaker workshop and introduction to 3D design software. In addition, it will also provide insight in the specific challenges encountered when translating 3D printing to biofabrication, such as the development of specific bioinks and the required control over processing conditions. Finally, it will provide state-of-the-art examples of how currently biofabrication is translated from bench towards the bedside.
