BioPrinting is 3D printing with living cells. Think of printing a new heart
or kidney for a patient needing a transplant! Or a bit more DIY-accessible:
how about printing an artificial leaf, as a proof of principle that we can
make a functioning (plant) organ?
As some of you know, I've been heavily involved in the BioPrinter project
at Biocurious for the past several years. And I've been wanting to get a
parallel group of the ground at CCL as well.
I plan to give an overview of bioprinting in general, go over what we've
done in the Bioprinter group away Biocurious so far, get hands-on with the
current hardware (which I've absconded from BioC for the week), and discuss
plans to restart a Bioprinting group at CCL.
Lots of overlap with our existing lab robotics and plant bio groups as
Hope to see you tonight!
