The ELiA team at LAAS CNRS has recently developed and patented a novel 3D bioprinting technology that couples the flexibility of microfluidics with the resolution of photo-polymerization to create 3D architectures starting from libraries of multiple synthetic matrices. Our ambition is to show that this multi-material printing approach will solve current issues related to the fabrication of heterogeneous cell microenvironments that recapitulates, in a reproducible way, some of the physical and fluidics aspects of living tissues.
- Development of 3D printing and bioprinting technologies recently patented at LAAS CNRS
- Instrumental development of the platform
- Validation of novel hydrogel materials for bioprinting
- Development of 3D cell microenvironment models (bone scaffold and adipose tissue models)
- Micro et nanotechnologies
- 3D printing
- Cell culture
The successful Post Doc candidate will be part of the European HoliFAB Project (H2020) that aims at coupling microfluidic concepts and additive manufacturing technologies for the development of 3D cell culture microenvironments. This interdisciplinary project will take place at the LAAS - CNRS research laboratory in Toulouse. LAAS-CNRS has mastered state of the art technologies in the field of 2D/3D micro and nano-manufacturing devoted to the development of micro and nano-devices for biophysical studies, biological analysis and medical diagnosis. This project will be carried out in collaboration with biology research teams (StromaLab, Toulouse and Institut Curie, Paris France) specialized in oncology and regenerative medicine as well as industrial partners involved in additive manufacturing technologies.
