Personal profile


It is well accepted that the properties of a material depend on its structure, and the structure depends on fabrication process. If we could have design & fabrication technologies that enable the local control of composition and structure across multiple length scales, we could create tissue grafts that better mimic the complex biological materials made by living organisms.


Academic background

Miguel Castilho is an Assistant Professor of Materials design and processing at the Department of Orthopedics, University Medical Center Utrecht (UMCU) and at the Department of Biomedical Engineering, Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e), in the Netherlands. He holds a MSc degree in Mechanical Engineering and a PhD in Biomedical engineering (cum laude) from the University of Lisbon (IST, Portugal). Dr. Castilho worked & was a visiting researcher in several research groups across Europe: FMZ, University of Würzburg, (Germany); IDMEC, Instituto Superior Tecnico, University of Lisbon (Portugal), University of Birmingham (UK); Department of Biomedical Engineering, Eindhoven University of Technology (The Neatherlands), in the field of biomaterials design and 3D printing.

Research profile

Miguel Castilho group focuses on manufacturing strategies of structural materials for regenerative medicine applications, in particular for musculoskeletal and cardiovascular engineering. A special focus lies on combining novel 3D printing technologies and multi-scale modelling to design and fabricate bio-inspired materials along different length scales.
