Zoan, Cellink and University of Galway collaboration on 3D printable coral-containing bioinks to present results at TERMIS, Manchester, 28-31st March 2023:
Biocompatibility of 3D bioprinted tissue model prototypes containing sustainably grown coral skeletal particles for orthopedic applications
E. Pernevik et. al.
Zoan and partners at CELLINK and University of Galway will be presenting the early results from our coral bioink development programme at Tissue Engineering and Regenerative Medicine International Society, Inc. (TERMIS) in Manchester, March 28-31. We are presenting in the ‘Sustainable biomaterials in bone tissue engineering’ symposium, which is the perfect forum to share our progress on 3D printable solutions using Zoan’s sustainable coral platform.
The TERMIS conference is the leading European event for the dissemination of the latest research in tissue engineering and regenerative medicine, offering researchers, clinicians and industry an ideal opportunity to present and discuss their most recent findings. The theme of the meeting in Manchester will be ‘Broadening the Targets and Approaches for Regenerative Medicine’ and will reflect state-of-the-art international science including the latest breakthroughs.
Dr Cynthia Coleman, who leads the research on Zoan’s coral biomaterials in the Regenerative Medicine Institute at University of Galway, has recently installed a Zoan Biomed sponsored CELLINK printer in her lab for further bioink formultaion testing. She is excited about the potential of the coral-containing bioinks. “Collaborating with innovative industry partners provides a great opportunity to deliver novel solutions in tissue engineering and regenerative medicine and we’re delighted to see the first stages of this exciting work presented at TERMIS in Manchester.”
