Utrecht Medical and EPFL researchers volumetrically bioprint living tissue constructs in seconds

A team of researchers from the Utrecht Medical Center and the École Polytechnique Fédéral Lausanne (EPFL) demonstrated the bioprinting of large living tissue constructs by processing cell‐friendly hydrogel‐based bioresins with a volumetric, visible light laser‐based printer. Authors of the study include bioprinting pioneers such as Professors Jos Malda and Riccardo Levato from the Utrecht Medical Center, as well as Professor Christophe Moser, from EPFL, who is an expert in photonics. Their research could open up new possibilities in terms of reproducing complex human organ tissue grafts by enabling the additive creation of highly complex geometries without the limitations of a layer-based method. Their research was published in the prestigious Advanced Materials journal.
