The research group is aimed at developing and testing extrusion system for tissue engineering application. As by its definition, the tissue engineering focuses on the creating or regenerating the damaged or diseased human tissue to recover it, and can be implemented with scaffold fabrication to be in vivo implanted and cell sheets with secreted ECM (organ printing). The resulted scaffolds are characterized mechanically prior to the clinical tests to evaluate the performance. The cluster also expand the research area into the development of “Lab-on-Chip“ for bioMedical devices as case of tissue cultivation on a chip.
