Smart biomaterials for tissue regeneration

Ageing and diseases usually result in tissue damage and organ failure. To regenerate functional tissues and restore organ function, bioactive materials with smart surfaces are essential to facilitate cellular activities.This project is to develop biomaterials actively engage with biological system to regulate and direct cell behaviour and tissue regeneration.

Topological control over cell behaviour for robust additive tissue biomanufacturing

Hospital departments are adopting medical imaging, modelling, and 3D printing to automate personalised implant manufacture and avoid malpractice related to surgical handcrafting. Although several 3D printed implants are approved for medical use, their therapeutic value remains limited as acellular devices with coarse resolution. The ability to print scaffold implants with cell microenvironment precision has been achieved using melt electrowriting (MEW), an emerging technique frequently applied to produce cell culture scaffolds.In contemporary MEW studies, the effect of materials or pore sizes …
