Consultation-hour for students:

Prof. Dr.-Ing. Andreas Blaeser is head of the chair for BioMedical Printing Technology, which was founded in summer 2019. Core of his research is the investigation and development of 3D-bioprinting systems (3D-Bioprinting).

Main focus areas are modelling and experimental research of various mechanisms and phenomena for the transport of biomaterials and their interaction with living cells. The research addresses major biofabrication challenges, such as the parallel printing of multifunctional material composites with different physical, chemical and biological properties. Furthermore, the pre- and post-processing steps accompanying the printing process, 3D data preparation and tissue maturation, are essential research elements.

Bioprinted organs-on-a-chip, which can be used for pharmacological and toxicological screening, as well as bioprinted implants for regenerative medicine provide the application-oriented framework of the department’s research activities. The transfer of the results into clinical practice and into industry is therefore highly relevant. For this reason, scaling and digitization of the investigated biofabrication-methods play an important role (Bioeconomy, IoT, Industry 4.0).
