The 3D BioPrinting Conference is integrated in the 3D Medical Conference

3D BioPrinting Conference

After four very successful 3D Bioprinting Conference editions, Jakajima as organiser of the conference has decided to integrate the conference in the 3D Medical Conference, which will last two days.

Also the sister conferences, 3D Medtech Conference, 3D Dental Conference and the 3D Medicine & Pharmaceutics Printing Conference will be integrated into the in the 3D Medical Conference.

Additive Manufacturing of functionally graded scaffolds for bone tissue engineering – Presented by Ravi Sinha, MERLN Institute, Maastricht University

Additive Manufacturing of functionally graded scaffolds for bone tissue engineering – Presented by Ravi Sinha, MERLN Institute, Maastricht University at the 3D Bioprinting Conference which takes place on Jan 31, 2017 at MECC Maastricht in The Netherlands.

“The classical tissue engineering approach has been to put cells within structural supports (scaffolds) which would resorb or remodel and integrate as the cells grow and form the tissue. Additive manufacturing (AM) has enabled this field immensely, due to the ability of these techniques to produce incredibly complex structures at several size scales, thus trying to mimic complex tissue structures and obtaining functional tissue as a result. Nature, however, does not just use structures, but also gradients in structures as well as mechanical and chemical properties.

3D Bioprinting: Ethical Aspects and the Big Picture – Presented by Anna Pacholczyk, Centre for Ethics in Medicine, University of Bristol at the 3D Bioprinting Conference which takes place on Jan 31, 2017 at MECC Maastricht in The Netherlands.

Advances in 3D bioprinting raise ethical, social, legal and regulatory issues. This presentation outlines the contribution of ethical enquiry to considering those issues, gives a snapshot of approaches to ethical assessment and applies an ethical framework (NEST-Ethics) to guide examination of some issues raised by the development in bioprinting science and technology.
