ENable LIGHT- and synthetic biology-driven volumetric bioprinting of functional human tissues

Project description

3D bioprinting enabling lab-made human tissues

As 3D printing enables the printing of living cells, amazing new horizons emerge in medical research and treatments as printing of lab-made human tissues could be used for biomedical studies and applications. However, the challenge is the existing complexity in capturing morphogenesis processes or functions of organs. For this reason, the EU-funded ENLIGHT project will develop a groundbreaking technological solution of volumetric bioprinting that combines 3D printing with synthetic biology and photonics. It uses visible light tomography to shape the cells or biomaterials into living tissue in ultrafast, multi-material, high-resolution mode while enabling 3D printing of cell functions for the first time. This opens a new era in medical research.
