About the webinar

Join us for an exciting webinar as we take a deep dive to explore how bioprinting is expanding the impact of marine invertebrate cell line development and drug discovery and habitat restoration applications. Dr. Shirley Pomponi will detail her group’s work as they look to combine the power of 3D bioprinting and cell culture of marine sponges to expand the production of critical sponge derived bio-active compounds and develop a sponge nursery for habitat restoration.
