Description

This course will cover basic concepts of material and mechanical properties, crosslinking chemistry, and variety of natural and synthetic biomaterials and bioinks that will be useful for anyone who are starting their journey into the world of bioprinting. Topics that will be covered include:

  • Material properties of biomaterials and bioinks

  • Mechanical properties of biomaterials and bioinks

  • Crosslinking chemistry most commonly used for bioinks

  • Natural bioinks: alginate, agarose, collagen, gelatin, hyaluronic acid, fibrin and silk fibroin

  • Synthetic materials and bioinks: Polycaprolactone (PCL), hydroxyapatite and Pluronic F127

  • Cells and bioinks and future directions

This course is ideal for an intermediate level with basic knowledge of bioprinting technology. We recommend that you start with an introductory course in bioprinting such as Bioprinting for Beginners, before jumping into this course. Background knowledge in biology, physics and chemistry will also be useful.

Who this course is for:
  • Life science professionals
  • Medical professionals
  • Bioengineers or biomedical engineers
  • Students in life science / biology
  • Students in bioengineering and related fields
  • Teachers in life science and related fields
