    Curious about the secrets behind engineering living tissues?
    Then discover our pioneering work happening at the Biomaterials Design & Processing BDP Lab.

    At the Biomaterials Design & Processing Lab, our mission is to push the boundaries of biomaterials processing for the production of functional tissues. We are doing this by developing bottom up self-assembly of biomaterials and high-throughput additive manufacturing and biofabrication technologies. We focus on the development of cell-free biomaterials scaffolding structures that can be used as implantable devices to support and influence functional tissue regeneration in vivo under (patho)physiological conditions, and on cell-laden tissue models that can be used as in vitro functional models to study healthy and disease conditions.

    Materials Mastery in Tissue Engineering
    At the forefront of our research, we harness a diverse range of synthetic and natural materials to meet the intricate needs of in vitro tissue models and implants. From biomaterials synthesis to high throughput additive manufacturing, bioprinting, and bioevaluation, our interdisciplinary approach ensures a comprehensive exploration of biomaterials, biomaterials cells/organoids for impactful tissue engineering solutions.
