PhD project by Carmen Radeke

Name: Carmen Radeke
Project Title:
Tailored Bio-Hybrid Matrices for 3D Printed Tissue Models
Group:
Tailored Materials and Tissues
Supervisor(s):
Andrew Urquhart and Johan Ulrik Lind

Project Description:
The core aim of this project is the development and optimization of nano-fibrillar bio-inks for 3D printing of cardiac micro-tissues. For this purpose, different hydrogels will be tailored chemically and physically to mimic the extracellular matrix and provide a stable network for adhesion of high cell densities. Furthermore, healthy and fibrotic cardiac muscle tissue constructs will be generated using predefined matrices.

Perspective:
Micro-physiological systems enable fast drug screening and disease-modelling on tissues derived from human cells, resembling more native counterparts compared to animal studies. This project will give an insight into 3D printing of models of living tissues and on how to tailor tissues in a predefined manner to mimic different stages of fibrosis.
