Seminario de la Dra. Rebeca Hernández, del Instituto de Ciencia y Tecnología de Polímeros (CSIC), titulado: “Design of Polymer Hydrogels as Biomaterial Inks for 3d Extrusion Printing”. El día 28 de abril, a las 10:30 hr, en la sala de Seminarios.


3D extrusion printing has evolved as one of the most employed manufacturing techniques for the fabrication of polymer scaffolds for applications in tissue engineering. Within the context, the selection of the polymer hydrogel to be employed as biomaterial ink is crucial and several parameters need to be taken into account, among which, rheological properties and their relation to printability need to be optimized for the production of stable scaffolds. In this talk, I will present a selection of research studies from my lab addressing the development of polymer hydrogels with tailored chemical structure and rheological properties to be employed as injectable hydrogels and biomaterial inks for 3D extrusion printing.
