Executive Summary

We are applying advanced photo-driven three-dimensional bioprinting techniques to engineer communities of bacterial cells for the purpose of studying and optimizing the design of next-generation bioelectrodes for electrosynthesis of valuable compounds. These techniques will advance the science of microbial engineering and provide a new capability for creating smart biomaterials that can be used in a variety of applications.
