Creating Functional Tissue Models With 3D Printing Technologies
Biofabrication combines advanced fabrication techniques with biological systems to prepare designed tissue constructs. These can be applied for tissue engineering, as 3D in vitro biologic models or as medical therapeutic products. Biofabrication is an international, research-driven master’s programme comprising a first year of coursework and research at Utrecht University / UMC Utrecht, followed by a research project and courses in Australia in the second year, at one of two universities which are at the forefront of 3D printing for medical applications. A European Union-subsidised mobility programme will financially support these overseas secondments. Upon completion, a double degree can be obtained, both from Utrecht University and the Australian host institution.
This Master’s programme will equip you with a toolbox to innovate within the multidisciplinary field of Biofabrication. We will provide a thorough understanding as well as operational experience of processes such as 3D bioprinting and other fabrication technology, biomaterials, 3D cell culturing, computer models and imaging. Our course content will instruct you to:
- understand and apply knowledge biofabrication technology for various tissues;
- design, plan, conduct, and communicate scientific research;
- write a compelling research proposal;
- critically evaluate literature and presentations;
- and function effectively in multidisciplinary, international groups.
