SelectBIO 3D-Printing and Biofabrication 2020 brings together researchers from across various disciplines who are involved in the fabrication of functional, engineered tissue constructs.

This field is of great interest for generating in vitro physiological and disease models, for target identification and drug screening, and as potential organ replacements amongst other applications.
A multitude of fabrication approaches to generate tissue engineered constructs exist including photopolymerization, 3D-printing, stereolithography, multiphoton lithography as well as self-assembly approaches. While much progress has been made in generating functional tissues using both synthetic and natural materials, increasing throughput and tissue volume has been challenging. This conference will focus on advanced techniques and approaches being used for biofabrication with a focus on potentially scalable technologies that will allow higher throughput manufacturing of functional tissues.

In addition to scientific presentations, this conference features exhibits with companies showcasing their technologies and product offerings into this field.

Registered delegates receive full access to all co-located and concurrent conference tracks to maximize scientific exchange and networking opportunities.
