Collection description

Tissue Engineering (TE), a highly interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary field which combines and merges efforts and knowledge from biology, engineering, medicine, and life science, aims to regenerate a damaged tissue, rather than replacing it, as it is typically done with conventional medical treatments. One of the main TE tools is the scaffold, which is a porous 3-Dimensional (3D) structure with controlled morphology and architecture. It guides and enhances the regeneration process, providing a 3D space for cells to grow into and create new tissue. A scaffold must mimic the Extra-Cellular Matrix of the tissue to be repaired, thus creating a favourable environment for cells to penetrate and potentially differentiate into the correct cell type. Scaffolds are typically realized through Additive Manufacturing (AM) technologies, in which objects are manufactured by adding material in a layer-by-layer fashion. AM techniques bring great advantages in terms of control over porosity (i.e., dimension and morphology) and interconnection. For the purpose of this thesis, many optimisation strategies towards the enhancement of extrusion-based AM processes will be investigated, as well as their implementation for the design and fabrication of porous scaffolds with tailorable morphology and properties for bone tissue regeneration.
