2021 Manufacturing Needs for Biofabrication of Engineered Tissues and Organs
Bioprinters - Bioreactors - Sensors

Monday, April 12, 8:30 am - 5:00 pm (CST USA)
Virtual Event

Breakthroughs in cell technologies, materials science, and biofabrication methods, particularly 3D bioprinting, have laid a foundation for large-scale manufacturing of tissues and tissue-related products. Attendees of this conference will learn from industry and academic experts on what will be needed to bring biofabrication from its current prototype stage to reproducible, manufactured tissue products. Short talks, discussions, a poster session, and brainstorming sessions will include topics covering bioprinters, biofabricators, bioreactors, and sensors for real-time, monitoring. Afternoon sessions offer choices in industry-related talks and discussions, and the symposium is sponsored by the UMN Stem Cell Institute and College of Science & Engineering.

Meeting Organizers:

  • Angela Panoskaltsis-Mortari, Director, UMN 3D Bioprinting Facility
  • Markus Reiterer, Sr. Prin. Materials Scientist, Medtronic
  • Lexi Garcia & Mary Clare McCorry, ARMI-BioFabUSA
  • Greta Babakhanova, PhD, Physicist, National Institute of Standards and Technology (Industry Session Organizer)
