3-D Printed Cellular Machines for Soft Robotics and Tissue Engineering

From 01/25/19 8:00 pm until 01/25/19 10:00 pm
Categories: Business

3D bio-printing can be a very powerful technology to produce bio-hybrid devices made of polymers and cells such as biological machines and soft robotics. The realization of such complex cellular systems will be a major challenge for the next decade and beyond, requiring knowledge from tissue engineering, synthetic biology, micro-fabrication and nanotechnology, systems biology, and developmental biology. In this talk, we will review our work and the state of the art in the area of forward design and fabrication of multi-cellular machines composed for cells and 3D printed polymers. As these “biological machines” increase in capabilities, exhibit emergent behavior, and potentially reveal the ability for self-assembly and self-repair, questions can arise also about the ethical implications of this work. -
