Comprehensive Review on Dynamic Hydrogels

Mimicking the complexity of our own extracellular matrix with synthetic materials remains an open quest. In this comprehensive review, we have attempted to highlight the most exciting developments in the material science field aiming at getting closer to the dynamic behaviour of biological materials.

Interreg Project BONE starts in Paris

Eight European companies and research institutes have teamed up in the innovative research project ‘’BONE: Bio-fabrication of Orthopaedics in a New Era’’. BONE is financed by the Interreg NWE programme, a cross-border partnership that is financially supported by the European Fund for Regional Development. This European transnational consortium led by Maastricht University (UM) will spend the next four years developing innovative bone implants.

Dynamic Materials for Biofabrication

As our tissues and organs change dynamically in time in response to stimuli from the surounding environment in our body, biomaterials used to create scaffolds for the regeneration of such tissues and organs should mimic this dynamicity.

Biofabrication Program at Brightlands
Published on: October 21, 2016
Category: Events

Here, we aim at joining academic and insutrial forces in a public private partnership that will deliver new biomedical products in the regenerative medicine field through several bioprinting technologies. WE will span from classical 3D printing for the creation of smart scaffolds that will be able to recruit and steer cell activity in situ to bioprinting of organs, with a particular focus on kidney, heart, and pancreas.
