Biomat is media partner of 3D Bioprinting Conference which will take place on 31-01-2017, at MECC Maastricht in The Netherlands.
Biomat.net is an organized and meaningful Biomaterials and Tissue Engineering communication resource for scientists, researchers, members of the business community, government, academia, and the general public. Biomat.net serves as a resource center to disclose news, data, and every other initiative related to biomaterials science and associated fields.
In brief, the “Biomaterials Resources on the Internet WebPage” was created in May 1998 and has considerably changed since then. In February 2000 it has become “The Biomaterials Network”, changing from the original collection of WWW links to an interactive source of information, where users could actively participate and communicate with each other. In 2016, Biomat.net adapts to modern networking by integrating its functionalities with social networks and mobile devices.
Since 2002, Biomat.net was selected for Current Web Contents, from the Institute for Scientific Information (ISI).
About 3D Bioprinting Conference
3D printing is becoming increasingly implemented in the operating room, with surgeons turning to the technology to create tailor-made implants for their patients. Several uses of the technology are already generating revenue as viable medical businesses, like dental applications, prosthetics and hearing devices.
The most disruptive application of 3D printing in the medical world might be bioprinting – the production of human organs for transplant or for body on a chip use. The technology involves the creation of replacement tissues and organs that are printed layer-by-layer into a three-dimensional structure.
This rapidly developing market raises many questions. Which technologies are developed yet? What are the costs of the production of bioprinted tissues and organs? Which effects does tissue engineering cause? Which markets are influenced by the innovative 3D printing technologies? And how quickly can those customized products be manufactured? The 3D Bioprinting Conference gives answers to these kinds of questions.
