Development of tissue engineering scaffold

Development of tissue engineering scaffold 
By PhD Student Soumyaranjan Mohanty, DTU Nanotech

The aim of this work is to explore the development of new technologies for 3D microfabrication of scaffold structures that can be used for creating blood vessels and growing and perfusion of a bioartificial liver. The focus of the project is to create scalable vascularised perfusable hybrid scaffolds (PHS) structures with:

  1. primary highly branched, unidirectional channel networks and
  2. secondary arbitrary porous networks, using random and structured fabrication processes

These PHSs will form the fundamental support for 3D endothelial and hepatocyte cell growth, serving both as a mechanical and growth support system.
