Vladimir Mironov, Chief Scientific Officer at 3D Bioprinting Solutions (3D Bio) and Leading Scientist at Regenerative Medicine Institute of the Moscow Sechenov Medical University, Russia will be the main instructors for the course in bioprinting and regenerative medicine organized by the Universidad de Los Andes in Bogotà, Colombia.
At 3D Bio, Professor Mironov is the key person behind some of the most pioneering work in bioprinting of organs. He received his Bachelor degree in Medicine at Ivanovo State Medical Institute and his Ph.D. in Developmental Biology from Second Moscow Pirogov Medical Institute. He has worked at the Department of Anatomy and Regenerative Medicine and Advanced Tissue Biofabrication Center in the Medical University of South Carolina in Charleston, USA and at the Division of 3D Technologies of Renato Archer Institute for Information Technology at Campinas, Brazil.
Mironov is one of the pioneers of 3D bioprinting technology, he bioprinted the first functional and vascularized organ construct, a mouse thyroid gland. He was the recipient of the prestigious 2018 Senior Investigation Award from the International Society of biofabrication for pioneering contribution to the development of 3D bioprinting technology. Last year his team performed the first magnetic levitational bioassembly of a 3D tissue construct at the International Space Station.
This course is aimed at students and professionals of Health Sciences with interest in the application of bioprinting and 3D manufacturing techniques in the field of medicine. The course will explore the opportunities offered by manufacturing technologies in the development of biomedical applications of different levels of complexity.
The fundamentals concepts of 3D bioprinting and the devices used for biofabrication will also be covered. Moreover, the course will also review the most recent techniques for 3D bioprinting design and the challenges to achieving high-fidelity biofabrication. This includes the development of bioinks with specific characteristics and unique processing conditions. Additionally, the biological aspects of the interaction of bioinks with different types of cells and specifically with stem cells will be discussed with the support bioink and bioprinter manufacturing company CELLINK.
