Session 6 : 3D printing of Biomaterials

Three-dimensional (3D) printing is most commonly used technique to fabricate scaffolds and devices for tissue engineering. The main aim of 3D printing is to provide patient-specific designs, high structural complexity and rapid on-demand fabrication at a low-cost. 3D printing techniques also require different materials like Thermoplastics; they are used for extrusion and commonly used in the 3D printing process. The two dominant thermoplastics are Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene (ABS) and Polylactid Acid (PLA). ABS is a fossil-based plasticand PLA a bio-based plastic.

Session 05 : Tissue Engineering in Tissue Repair

The Cellular and Molecular mechanics is the backbone of tissue repair and current therapies including tissue engineering is limited. Tissue engineering often involves cells and scaffolds to replace damaged tissue. It originated, in part, as a means of affecting the delivery of biomolecules. There should be controlled release of biomolecules for activating cell deliveryBiomolecules can enable modulate inflammatory responsecell engraftment, and the behavior of the delivered cells.

Session 04 : Biodegradable Biomaterials

Biodegradable Biomaterials are those which are intended to get degraded in the body safely. These materials are either magnesium based or iron based alloys. They are mainly applied for cardiovascular implants as stents and orthopaedics. Hydrogels are the polymeric materials containing water, which are the first biomaterials for human use. Nanofiber scaffolds are used for orthopaedic tissue repair and regeneration. Biomimetic materials are those which can show cellular responses mediated by scaffold and peptide interactions from extracellular matrix.

Session 03 : Tissue Engineering

Tissue engineering is an emerging field which involves biology, medicine, and engineering that is likely to revolutionize the ways we improve the health and quality of life for millions of people worldwide by restoring, maintaining, or enhancing tissue and organ function. Tissue engineering is the development of artificial tissue and organ systems. The term regenerative medicine is often used synonymously with tissue engineering, although those involved in regenerative medicine place more emphasis on the use of stem cells to produce tissues.

Session 02 : Biomaterials

Biomaterials are those materials which are usually made of multiple components that interact with 3biological system. #Biomaterials are normally used in medical application like drug delivery, therapeutics, and diagnostics to replace a natural function. The most commonly used biomaterials are polymers. All biomaterials meet certain criteria and regulatory requirements before they can be qualified for use in medical applications. Biomaterial Science has a broad scope that covers the fundamental science of biomaterials through to their biomedical applications.

Session 01 : Biomedicine

Biomedicine is the branch that deals with Medical sciences and Applies Biology and physiology. Biomedicine also relate to many categories in Health, Molecular biology, Biochemistry, Biotechnology, Cell biology and Genetics. This branch relies more on theory, the history of the disease, the medicines recommended, their effectiveness and finally the result. Another important feature of this branch is that it works for both with humans and animals. This is the first common branch of medicine wherein the animals and humans will be given equal importance while finding the solution for different health diseases.
