Biofabrication is the application of advanced manufacturing (AM) to medicine. Part of our research involves the design and construction of AM tools to aid in tissue engineering, 3D scanning, computational medicine and 3D printing solutions for several healthcare needs.

Research activities

You'll work with our diverse group of researchers from diverse disciplines, such as:

  • healthcare
  • engineering
  • chemistry
  • physics
  • mathematics.

You'll have the opportunity to learn new skills and develop new technologies that can revolutionise healthcare.


This project aims to develop algorithms, simulations, and robotic fabrication hardware to solve our research challenges.

Skills and experience

As the ideal candidate you'll have a background in mechatronics.
