Better Bioprinting by Light-sheet Lithography

Project description

A novel top-down lithography approach to bioprinting will overcome current challenges

Tissue engineering has advanced significantly over the last decades. Bioprinting is currently the most promising method to produce functional engineered tissues. Conventional bottom-up, layer-by-layer printing is the norm yet there are significant challenges including viability and technical limitations to printing speed and spatial resolution. The EU-funded B-BRIGHTER project is developing a top-down lithography approach using ultra-high-speed digital light-sheet illumination to selectively photo-crosslink layers of cell-laden hydrogels mimicking specific tissues. The approach will quickly create functional 3D geometries with high spatial resolution. The team will develop a validated business case to support a path to market.
