"The 5th World Congress will be held from September 4 to 7, 2018 at the Kyoto International Conference Center, Kyoto, Japan. The theme for the 2018 TERMIS World Congress is “Integration of Industry, Government, and Academia for Regenerative Medicine,” reflecting the importance of strong cooperation of Industry-Government-Academia to realize tissue engineering and regenerative medicine. To this end, the 2018 scientific program will focus on the innovative technologies, legal regulation, and commercialization focused in tissue engineering and regenerative medicine."

Working on a way to create a flexible bio-battery, researchers at the University of Fribourg used four compositions of hydrogel, and combined them to form a continuous series that mimicked the electric eel’s organized electrocytes anatomy. All hydrogel patterns were printed using a regenHU 3DDiscovery 3D bioprinter, with a custom print plate.
"My research is really awesome, because we're using 3D printers to create human body parts from scratch."

Simultaneous Micropatterning of Fibrous Meshes and Bioinks for the Fabrication of Living Tissue Constructs
Abstract: Abstract Fabrication of biomimetic tissues holds much promise for the regeneration of cells or organs that are lost or damaged due to injury or disease. To enable the generation of complex, multicellular tissues on demand, the ability to design and incorporate different materials and cell types needs to be improved. Two techniques are combined: extrusion‐based bioprinting, which enables printing of cell‐encapsulated hydrogels; and melt electrowriting (MEW), which enables fabrication of aligned (sub)‐micrometer fibers into a single‐step biofabrication process. Composite structures generated by infusion of MEW fiber structures with hydrogels have resulted in mechanically and biologically competent constructs; however, their preparation involves a two‐step fabrication procedure that limits freedom of design of microfiber architectures and the use of multiple materials and cell types. How convergence of MEW and extrusion‐based bioprinting allows fabrication of mechanically stable constructs with the spatial distributions of different cell types without compromising cell viability and chondrogenic differentiation of mesenchymal stromal cells is demonstrated for the first time. Moreover, this converged printing approach improves freedom of design of the MEW fibers, enabling 3D fiber deposition. This is an important step toward biofabrication of voluminous and complex hierarchical structures that can better resemble the characteristics of functional biological tissues.Read all the article
