  • Generation of defined 3D scaffolds
    using two-photon-polymerisation (2PP)
    for a targeted manipulation of the cell behavior

  • 3D cell printing methods for biological tissue


Connecting printed biological tissue to the vascular system is a work priority of the Biofabrication Group. For this purpose, the researchers are using laser-based processes to conntect biological cells to vascular cells, and thus to create tissue-like cell structures. In the future, biological implants could be manufactured based on these cell structures.

Besides, the LZH scientists develop innovative bio-materials for laser-generated scaffolds by structuring biological material and hydro gels with the laser. These scaffolds then serve as a "framework" for the formation of three-dimensional artificial tissue.
