Intravital 3D bioprinting of coronary artery bypass
Three-dimensional (3D) bioprinting represents an emerging tissue engineering strategy, that associates manufacturing-based biotechnology to biology for the development of functional bio-structures. The ultimate goal of bioprinting is the generation of de novo synthesized tissues/organs that are suitable for the tretment of degenerated, damaged or lost tissue/organs in patients. The goal of our multidisciplinary research team is to develop novel strategy for the treatment of cardiovascular conditions by combining 3D bio-printing strategies with emerging biomaterial and technology.
