Our team is headed to Australia with our RX1 bioprinter for the first time, and we will be attending several events while there. First off, is ISSCR 2018 (International Society for Stem Cell Research Annual Meeting 2018) in Melbourne, Australia, where we will be presenting our research with Dr. Stephanie Willerth and demonstrating our RX1 bioprinter (booth #157). We will also be hosting a seminar at Monash University before visiting the University of Wollongong to host a workshop at the Intelligent Polymer Research Institute.
The International Society for Stem Cell Research Annual Meeting 2018 is taking place in Melbourne, Australia. There will be over 3500 attendees at this premier stem cell conference, which brings together all the key stakeholders in the stem cell community.
Title: 3D Bioprinting Personalized Human Neural Tissues for Drug Screening Applications
Poster board number: T-2161 Poster session: POSTER SESSION II-ODD
Presentation time: 6:00 PM Day/Date: Thursday, June 21, 2018
We will be hosting a seminar at Monash University in Melbourne to discuss "3D Bioprinting - The Next Frontier in Medicine".
Imagine a world where drugs are developed without the use of animals, and where replacement organs are 3D printed from a patient's own cells, rather than being harvested. The award-winning interdisciplinary team at Aspect Biosystems is working towards making this a reality. Using a unique microfluidic approach to 3D bioprinting called Lab-on-a-Printer™, Aspect is 3D printing living tissues that are improving the efficiency of drug discovery and generating implantable tissue therapies to replace diseased or worn-out tissues. In his presentation, Tamer will discuss Aspect’s 3D printing technology, and will describe real-life use-cases that demonstrate the potential for bioprinting to revolutionize the fields of pharmaceutical drug development, disease research, personalized and regenerative medicine by providing living human tissues on demand.
Our CEO, Tamer Mohamed looks forward to hosting a workshop in Wollongong at The Intelligent Polymer Research Institute (IPRI). This institute is a key research strength at the University of Wollongong and is the lead node of the Australian Research Council (ARC) Centre of Excellence for Electromaterials Science (ACES) and lead node of the Australian National Fabrication Facility (ANFF) - Materials node. Like the seminar at Monash, this workshop will focus on "3D Bioprinting - The Next Frontier in Medicine."
