'Functional Biointerface Elements via Biofabrication'

Imagine in the future, bionic devices that can merge device and biology which can simulate the functions of biological matters, perform molecular sensing, or even replace or improve parts of the organ as smart implants? Such bionic devices could further our understanding in the living systems, and present major leaps in regenerative medicine. An ongoing research effort of Shery Huang’s Biointerface lab is to develop new biofabrication strategies to merge biological matters and man-made materials and devices. This talk will present her lab’s recent work, from technological development in 3D bioprinting and 3D micropatterning of extracellular matrix analogue, to translational applications in microvessel-on-chip, and in vitro tissue and organ models.

Dr Yan Yan Shery Huang is a University Lecturer in Bioengineering and Group Leader of the Biointerface Lab, Department of Engineering at the University of Cambridge.
