During this course you will be introduced to the basics of extrusion and light-based bioprinting. You will learn how this novel technology can be used to print tissue models mimicking the innate cellular environment and be introduced to some of the most common applications.

About this course

Bioprinting technology is an emerging and growing research field that combines additive manufacturing principles for the engineering of tissues and organs for both in-vitro and in-vitro applications. During this short course, you will learn directly from global leaders in the field about basics and latest advancements in the field.

You will 3D bioprint cells in the laboratory and will have the opportunity to receive feedback on your ongoing and future projects using bioprinting technologies.

Key benefits of this course

This course has been designed to:

  • Provide sufficient knowledge on how to choose and use bioinks for a variety of tissues and organs
  • Support researchers with no previous experience in 3D bioprinting
  • Expand your knowledge around bioinks, hydrogels and 3D bioprinters for both in-vitro and in-vivo applications in a transdisciplinary manner.


Digital badge and certificate

A digital badge and certificate will be awarded following the successful completion of any necessary tasks or assessments to demonstrate acquired learning of the short course or for meeting attendance and/or participation requirements.
