3D Printing and Bioprinting for Pharmaceutical and Medical Applications

Researchers of CIBER-BBN group NanoBioCell – NANBIOSIS U10 Drug Formulation unit Jose Luis Pedraz Muñoz, Laura Saenz del Burgo Martínez, Gustavo Puras Ochoa, Jon Zarate Sesma have edited the book “3D Printing and Bioprinting for Pharmaceutical and Medical Applications”

The increasing availability and decreasing costs of 3D printing and bioprinting technologies are expanding opportunities to meet medical needs. 3D Printing and Bioprinting for Pharmaceutical and Medical Applications discusses emerging approaches related to these game-changer technologies in such areas as drug development, medical devices, and bioreactors.

Key Features:

  • Offers an overview of applications, the market, and regulatory analysis
  • Analyzes market research of 3D printing and bioprinting technologies
  • Reviews 3D printing of novel pharmaceutical dosage forms for personalized therapies and for medical devices, as well as the benefits of 3D printing for training purposes
  • Covers 3D bioprinting technology, including the design of polymers and decellularized matrices for bio-inks development, elaboration of 3D models for drug evaluation, and 3D bioprinting for musculoskeletal, cardiovascular, central nervous system, ocular, and skin applications
  • Provides risk-benefit analysis of each application
  • Highlights bioreactors, regulatory aspects, frontiers, and challenges

This book serves as an ideal reference for students, researchers, and professionals in materials science, bioengineering, the medical industry, and healthcare.

The role of microfluidics and 3D-bioprinting in the future of exosome therapy. A high impact review

Researchers of the NanoBioCel research group of the University of the Basque Country (UPV/EHU) and CIBER BBN, belonging to NANBIOSIS U10 Drug Formulation, Bioaraba, and CONICET Foundation of Argentina, have collaborated in a studio entitled: “The role of microfluidics and 3D-bioprinting in the future of the exosome therapy” which has been published in the journal Trends in Biotechnology, whose editorial seeks particularly relevant articles.

The importance of this publication lies in the novelty and potential of nanovesicles as new therapeutic agents and the versatility of microfluidic technology in combination with 3D bioprinting to bring nanovesicles closer to the clinic.

New 3D culture device to better understand how tumours work

Scientist of NANBIOSIS in collaboration with other CIBER-BBN researchers have developed a sophisticated microfluidic biomedicine device capable of reproducing in vitro and by 3D bioprinting the complexity of different tumour types. This device allows tumour cells to grow in a 3D environment where nutrients and oxygen are supplied in a controlled way through small capillaries, thus mimicking the body’s own blood vessels.

Thanks to this new technology, it is now possible to reproduce in a controlled way all the processes of the tumour environment, which could help to develop new treatments and combinations of drugs that are more effective for the treatment of these tumours.

In this study, published in Scientific Reports, have participated researchers from the Group of Applied Mechanics and Bioengineering (AMB) of the University of Zaragoza , which coordinates Unit 13 of NANBIOSIS .
