The field of tissue engineering research offers hope to bridge the gap between organ shortage and transplantation needs. Engineering sophisticated 3-D constructs mimicking tissues remains a technological challenge. In our Computer Aided Tissue Engineering Facility we are using 3-D bioprinting technology to print cells, biomaterials, and cell-laden biomaterials to create 3-D tissue-like structures. A great variety of biomaterials are in use to print scaffolds designed based on 3-D CAD models and patient CT data. Our facility is equipped with 3-D-Bioplotter, CT, bioreactor and well established cell culture lab.
