About

Additive manufacturing (3D printing) uses a layer-by-layer principle for manufacturing. This one-week 3D Printing and Biofabrication course from Utrecht Summer School will provide insight in the opportunities of additive manufacturing technologies and 3D (bio)printing in biomedical applications.

Overview

The 3D Printing and Biofabrication course from Utrecht Summer School will provide the basics of 3D printing, including hands-on workshops to learn how the printers work. In addition, it will also provide insight in the challenges encountered when translating 3D printing to biofabrication.

This one-week course will provide insight in the opportunities of additive manufacturing technologies and 3D printing in biomedical applications. 

It will provide the basics of 3D printing, including practical, hands-on workshops. In addition, it will also provide insight in the challenges encountered when translating 3D printing to biofabrication. 

Additive manufacturing (3D printing) uses a layer-by-layer principle for creating physical objects starting from 3D computer designs. 

The success of the field of additive manufacturing will be extended to produce biological tissues, to address the many health challenges facing an increasingly aging population. Biofabrication could thus be used to repair tissues damaged by trauma, disease or cancer, while many diagnostic applications and pharmaceutical (screening) systems could also benefit from this developing technology.

Programme Structure

Course aim:

  • To provide insight in the opportunities of additive manufacturing technologies and 3D printing in biomedical applications. It will provide the basics of 3D printing, including a hands-on Ultimaker workshop and introduction to 3D design software. 
  • In addition, it will also provide insight in the specific challenges encountered when translating 3D printing to biofabrication, such as the development of specific bioinks and the required control over processing conditions. Finally, it will provide state-of-the-art examples of how currently biofabrication is translated from bench towards the bedside.
