Light Sheet-based Laser Patterning Bioprinting Produces Long-term Viable Full-thickness Skin Constructs
B-BRIGHTER researchers from GUF and IBEC publish an outstanding paper in Advanced Materials Journal presenting LUMINATE (Light sheet-based Ultrafast Microscopic Non-contact And Three-dimensional Enhanced bioprinting), a method that encompasses high printing speed and high resolution while introducing a fully integrated and streamlined fluorescent light sheet microscope capable of capturing real 3D images by optical sectioning the bioprinted construct.
Last 29th of September, researchers from 26 European countries participated in the European Researchers' Night 2023. Among them, Elena Martínez, Marcel Sorribas and Gustaf Mårtensson presented B-BRIGHTER and talked about the science behind the project. Additionally, B-BRIGHTER was also featured on the Catalan website of the event.
The “Advances in 3D Bioprinting” conference, focused on the latest advancements in bioprinting methods and applications, counted with the presence of several B-BRIGHTER researchers from the Institute for Bioengineering of Catalonia (IBEC), who presented the last developments of the project.
Nuria Torras participates in the Youth and Science program and hosts a high school student for three weeks in the laboratory
Youth and Science is a program from La Pedrera Foundation in Barcelona that puts together 15–16-year-old students with scientists from different fields and allow them to perform a small research project. Nuria Torras took part in this engagement activity and hosted Lola Dagà for 3 weeks at the Biomimetic systems for cell engineering groupfrom the Institute for Bioengineering of Catalonia (IBEC).
What is 3D bioprinting? B-BRIGHTER researchers explained that and more at the “Science Party” in Barcelona.
The 16th Science Party (“Festa de la Ciència” in Catalan) took place last 10 – 11 of June in Barcelona. Researchers from the Institute for Bioengineering of Catalonia proposed a hands-on activity to bring B-BRIGHTER project closer to the society.
The Technion team invited to present B-BRIGHTER at the “Epithelial Differentiation and Keratinization” Gordon Research Conference
B-BRIGHTER was present at the prestigious Gordon Research Conference 2023 on “Epithelial Differentiation and Keratinization”, held last 04-09 of June in Castelldefels, Spain. The team of Ruby Shalom-Feuerstein from Technion – Israel Institute of Technology was invited to present their last advances in the research of cornea stem cells.
What would happen if we could do human tissue bioprinting under 0g? This is the key question of ASTRoLAB: Advanced Space-based Tissue Regeneration with Light-sheet Assisted Bioprinting. This side-project based on B-BRIGHTER technology has been recently submitted to the European Space Agency (ESA).
The technology transfer team from the Institute for Bioengineering of Catalonia presented the B-BRIGHTER innovative 3D bioprinter at the first Connection Day in Catalonia, a networking event designed to be a benchmark space for B2B connections in the health sector.
Last 19-21 of April B-BRIGHTER members meet together at Tübingen for the 6M internal and progress meetings and a visit to the new facilities of CELLENDES.
B-BRIGHTER project had a notable participation at the last 3D Cell Culture Conference: Models, Applications & Translation, with two talks and two posters explaining the rationale behind the project and the latest advances. The emphasis of this year’s meeting was on advanced and predictive 3D cell culture models.
