The Bioprint Facility for Translational Science and Medicine in the MTP Sector

This project will provide engagement and commercialisation assistance for at least three SME's in progressing their BioInk or related production / delivery system.

The University of Wollongong are creating a Bio-Printing facility to expedite the development of commercial opportunities in 3D bioprinting. This project will provide the technical expertise and facilities to enable the development of commercial opportunities identified by the clinical partners and SMEs for the production of relevant biomaterials, formulations of bioinks or customised bioprinting systems.

Outcomes: A new facility (TRICEP - Translational Research Initiative of Cellular Engineering and Printing) has been established at Wollongong. Fourteen new technologies are being progressed, including 3D printed skin for burns victims and ear cartilage regeneration - allowing patient specific implants using their own stem cells.
