Project Overview

This cross-disciplinary study takes a unique approach in which combined additive manufacturing (3D printing) and microwave foaming is adopted to fabricate tissue scaffolds.  A key outcome will be the fabrication of a scalable, inexpensive system for development of bio-artificial organs, which can significantly improve people‚Äôs lives by providing an alternative option for people needing organ transplantation.
