Tutorial-5: 3D-BioPrinting, and beyond

Chairs: Sébastien Meghezi, Cloud Science Inc. - Corinne Hoesli, McGill University

Tissue-engineering and regenerative medicine hold the promises of many researchers, clinicians and industrials to face the challenges of organ shortage crisis and the risk of immune rejection during transplantation. However, these engineered tissues must be "smartly" structured in order to adequately mimic the natural organization of the extracellular matrix and cells.

Tutorial-6: Biotechnology for Biomaterials

Chairs: Gregory De Crescenzo, Polytechnique Montréal - Nathalie Faucheux, Université de Sherbrooke

The development of biomaterials that are not inert but bioactive leading to a specific cell response in terms of differentiation and function requires a better understanding on the biomaterial-cell interaction and their subsequent impact on cell behaviour
