PERIOD: APRIL - JULY The Course “Additive manufacturing in bioengineering and surgery” will allow to obtain a general overview on the different additive manufacturing techniques with particular focus on the development of innovative biomaterials for different biomedical engineering and surgery fields. Furthermore, it will provide the advanced skills for the design of 3D porous scaffolds for tissue engineering and devices clinical surgery, starting from real case studies

Additive manufacturing (AM) techniques offer the potential to fabricate organized tissue constructs to repair or replace damaged or diseased human tissues and organs. Using these techniques, spatial variations of cells along multiple axes with high geometric complexity in combination with different biomaterials can be generated. Moreover, the level of control offered by these computer-controlled technologies to design and fabricate tissues will accelerate our understanding of the governing factors of tissue formation and function. Finally, AM techniques provide extensive customization as per the individual patient data and requirements for medical surgery. In this course: - different additive manufacturing techniques will be introduced, allowing the simultaneous deposition of cells and materials and, the limitations due to the lack of suitable materials and the requirements to pass from theoretical concepts to practical application will be discussed; - three-dimensional scaffolds and devices for clinical surgery will be designed through the use of dedicated softwares by using two different AM techniques (Fused deposition modeling and Bioprinting) starting from clinical images obtained from real studies. - advanced AM strategies, used in current research and/or clinic for tissue and organ regeneration/repair will be presented and discussed.
