Young Scientist TERMIS-EU Award
The TERMIS-EU Award for Young Scientist goes this year to Lorenzo Moroni for his efforts on creating scaffolds for tissue engineering and regenerative medicine applications through the development of biofabrication strategies.
Second meeting of FAST on additive manufacturing for regenerative medicine
The second meeting of the FAST consortium has successfully taken place at MERLN in our facilities. The meeting showed the nice progress that the consortium is achieving in the different multidisciplinary aspects of the project, stepping closer and closer to the targeted new hybrid additive manufacturing technology for regenerative medicine applications.
Scaffolds for Islets Vascularization
In a new study by Giulia Marchioli, former Ph.D. student of the Moroni Lab, we show how 3D printing can be used to created hybrid scaffolds that improve the recruitment of vessels in the site of implantation while preserving Islets functionality
In a series of recent papers, Andrea Di Luca demonstrated how additive manufacturing can be used to design and fabricate scaffolds displaying a number of structural and physico-chemical gradients able to influence the differentiation of adult stem cells towards skeletal cells.
Kick-off of FAST at MERLN
The kick-off meeting of the H2020 FAST project that we coordinate together with our partner Nadir has successfully taken place at MERLN. The consortium aims at developing new desktop 3D plotting technology to fabricate smart scaffolds for bone regeneration
Refining the biofabrication envelop
The Moroni Lab has contributed to an important article proposing a new refined definition of biofabrication for tissue engineering and regenerative medicine
The success of the International Biofabrication Conference 2015
The international conference of Biofabrication that we organized in 2015 was a great success, with several members of the international society for biofabrication rating it the best conference organized on this topic so far.
A Royal Visit
His Majesty King Willem-Alexander visited the newly established MERLN Institute for Technology-Inspired Regenerative Medicine, where the Biofabrication group is located.
