New Biomaterials for 3D-Printing of Bone

Åshild Johansen, a PhD candidate in the Tissue Engineering Group, represented the University of Bergen and gave a talk at the National Convention for the Norwegian Dental Association in November 2023. The title of the talk was, “New Biomaterials for 3D-Printing of Bone”, where she presented some of her newest results.

Main content

Åshild presented some new biomaterials with potential in regenerative medicine. Three light curing composite materials which can be 3D-printed and used as scaffolding materials in bone tissue engineering. Results from a bioprinting project were also presented, showing two different materials with different cell types, where the aim is vascularization and osteogenesis.
