Bioprinting the Unprintable with Unjammed Powder Printing

Claire Robertson | 21-LW-009

Executive Summary

We will develop unjammed powder printing to overcome current limits on bioprinting, including printing inefficiency, timing restrictions, and the inability to store printed products, and then demonstrate the technology by patterning materials applied to storable biofilms and bone tissue engineering. If successful, our research will expand bioprinting for biosecurity applications such as implanted biosensors, development of complex bacterial cultures, and replacement of damaged tissues.
